Skype is still pretty nifty, but it worries me that it’s been bought by eBay. They don’t seem to care much about evilness in their PayPal division, so why would they care if Skype goes evil?
That brings me to Google Talk, which is embryotic compared to Skype, but is at least run by people who claim the unofficial motto “Don’t be evil”. I’m now using both, and rooting for Google Talk to develop into a solution for Internet-to-POTS telephony (like SkypeOut).
So if you want to add me, look for sylvar (you may have to add “@” and Gmail’s .com domain name to that).
