Skype Video Interview with Josh Silverman, CEO

I’ve been editing like a wild thing! Just uploaded video from the Skype 5th Birthday party, in case you wanted to know what went on that night – Apologies for the slightly dodgy audio, the acoustics were not the best in a London nightclub with the New Yuricans playing at full volume during the individual interview section, although I did do a little tweaking.  I really liked the fact that Josh from Skype used words like “Woolly Mammoth” in conjunction with Voice-Over IP software. 

Here’s a bit of his speech and the interview.

Nero has just launched some new software yesterday, including Nero 9 and a fabulous new program called “Move It”  – I got to see it first last week (it’s been under embargo) and I recorded some vlog footage for your delectation.  I may even be able to post the video up today if I drink enough tea to fuel the computer.

P.S. Rather bravely (some might say idiotically), I decided to play with the registry in Vista, being inspired by Techware Labs’ post  – much to my amazement, my computer now starts up quicker, although I would be very, very careful and BACK UP if you also have an irrational urge to poke around in your PC’s private areas…

  1. Thanks for posting the video of Skype’s 5th birthday party. It’s hard to believe that the company is only 5 years old. The technology has had such a big impact on the world in a short period of time.

  2. Hi jan,
    thanks for your comment – this was an interview for 5 mins in a noisy bar with Josh Silverman, who at the time had only been CEO for about 6 months. This was also recorded way before the Skype / China stuff was in the news.

    My blog has always been a celebration of technology, gadgetry and innovation, as opposed to hardcore investigative journalism, of which there are many other sites to choose from.

    Yes, I’m a big fan of Skype as a service, and use it most days – that’s my opinion as opposed to someone “PR-ing” me when I wasn’t looking…

    yes, I was also quite amazed that Skype had only been around for 5 years, we both must have been there at the beginning in that case.
