Mr. Blog: Bloom Off the Rose At Skype

David Beckemeyer may be one of the few bloggers who can write this type of post and has the chops to back it up. He co-founded Earthlink, bringing what is really the Internet to more people than anyone with the way he developed the EarthLink on ramp technology and the discs. Many think AOL was, but, no, it was EarthLink and that was David and Sky Dayton.

Now onto his post about the luster falling off of Skype. He's right and for many of the reasons he cites Niklas is back in the hot seat.

In a separate post he also expresses a concern with Skype's inconsistent Skype Out. I agree and have found the issues to be more glaring in the USA when it comes to terminating calls on mobile phones, and tend to think it is how Skype handles call routing and termination here in the USA before it gets to Level3's Network.
