Skype is on the front page of the News and Observer this morning! A long
article from the Washington Post is carried mostly whole in the Raleigh
paper. Here’s the original article from the Post.

A few interesting numbers from the article:

  • 30% of Skype’s customers are businesses
  • Skype gets more new customers in a single week than Vonage has in total
    for its entire life as a company
  • Skype has 171 employees; Verizon landlines has 142,000.

I’ll be on the way to and in DC. Skype me as smalljones. I loved catching up with Mark McCarthy in Sudan via Skype.
