Skype Scalability Problems?
from the can-you-hear-me-now? dept
Newly blinged-out Skype boss Niklas Zennstrom had some trouble getting through via Skype video call to speak at the VON conference in Boston yesterday, leaving the audience hanging for over an hour. Eventually they settled on a Skype audio-only feed, which reportedly became muffled at points. We’ve seen some trouble with badly lagged Skype IM sessions with people at conferences as well — does this hint at some scalability problems that may have motivated Skype to sell? If nothing else, though, it does illustrate how Zennstrom’s refusal to come to the US could be a pain for eBay.
