Skypecasting Has Arrived

by Lucas Roze

For all you 100 million + Skype users, you can sympathize with me when I tell you that having more than 5 people on the line gets a little sketchy. People get arbitrarily dropped, the line goes dead, or worse you sound like the voice coming from the drive-thru at Burger King. This problem must have sparked some people to bombard questions to the Internet phone giants to come up with an effective solution….and they did.

As of today, members of Skype will have the option to host audio conversations (aka. Skypecasts) with up to 100 people at a time! I don’t think I even know a hundred people, but Skype believes there is a market out there, and they are probably right.

In addition to hosting a massive Internet conversation, TypePad is also getting in on the action by offering the ability to publicize their Skypcasts on their personal TypePad blogs.  With recent interest in Vlogs, this seems to be a natural transition for the blogging community. Large conversations can be great for topic discussions intended for groups (i.e. universities), this could be utilized for community meetings, large political endeavours, interest group gatherings or even family reunions. Who knows, they might start hosting premier events like the World Cup on choice sites (which would be awesome)! Or better yet, universities could host tutoring forums for all their online courses for added value.

To subscribe to this service, you simply need to go to https://skypecasts.skype.com and create a Skypecast…it’s too easy.

With all this buzz around voice blogging, I think that they really nipped this one in the bud. Large benchmark companies such as Skype understand the importance of catering to their clientele and strive to achieve new levels. I just hope that with all these recent innovations that I will get a clearer connection when I meet up with my buddies’ world wide for our online poker games. Better yet, I’ll host a Skypecast!
