Something to make our lives even noisier than they already are. Skypecasts are all a-buzz, promising everything from long distance AA meetings, to university seminars, to ad-hoc choral jam sessions.
Given Skype’s amorphic character (voice+IM+voicemail+SMS+filesharing+cheap long distance), lots of possibilities are here opening up. Minds are reeling.
The moderation feature is an interesting, perhaps foreshadowy development. Maybe Skype has a major institutional client (such as a university or gubernatorial body) waiting in the wings to be their flagship vertical or reseller? Maybe Oprah?
Or maybe it’s merely that ebay auctions will go audio. That could be marginally enjoyable, I guess…
