Phew.  There was no talk of the markets today.  Heading back to technology, our guest this morning was Mike Bartlett, Skype‘s product manager for Windows to discuss Beta 2.0 of the Skype 4.0 product.

Skype 4.0 beta 1 was launched June 18th.  Since then, Skype has seen up to 350,000 simultaneous users of beta 1 online at any particular time.  Building from over 50,000 pieces of feedback, the company made choices about what features to include in the new beta. 

Mike told us about the company’s goals for the first beta, the things they learned, some of the key features that they included in the new beta, and why. He also described how the company makes choices about which platforms to support, and alluded to an upcoming Mac release for our long suffering participants on the call who use Macs.
