I can, its just that nobody I know uses Skype.  The other part of it is that I’m not a chatty person anyway – but the technology and concept is so cool to me that I wish I could.  I’ve set up an account and checked out the service, and it is really neat.

I wanted VoIP years ago when I got my first taste of it with NetMeeting.  At the time, I even tried to use it with one of those early Connectix QuickCams that you attached to the parallel port (seriously).  Now that the reality of VoIP and desktop video conferencing is nearly ubiquitous, the challenge is not as great as it once was.

So whats the next really cool, tough challenge for the technology buff to play with?
