Free Skype from eBay!
I never was able to comprehend the "wisdom" of eBay buying Skype, other than for the founders and investors to cash out of Skype, so now I am excited to hear that there is an effort underway to separate Skype from eBay. That should re-energize Skype to innovate much more rapidly. An article in The New York Times by Brad Stone entitled "European Duo Seeks to Buy Skype Back From EBay" summarizes current efforts to "free" Skype from eBay.
Who knows, Skype might even be a much more organic partner for Twitter than even Google.
