James Fallows had an article in Sunday's New York Times about his experience using Skype, the wildly innovative Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) tool that is going to wreak havoc in the telecommunications business.
Based on the article, Skype appears to be something akin to instant messaging and peer-to-peer technology wrapped into a single program. This much is clear: this technology is truly disruptive in the best sense of the term. It will be extremely attractive to consumers and will force telephone and cable companies to innovate, obstruct, or die.
This will be interesting to watch. Anyone out there have any experience with Skype?
