I am constantly amazed by Internet innovators. There are new killer applications coming out every day.
One great app that I have blogged about before is Skype. Alex Ragone and I use Skype to produce our Internet radio show on 21st century education (podcast feed, or listen live). We conference call each other (totally free) using the Skype software, and Alex’s computer streams it live on the Internet and records it for podcasting purposes. You can then listen live and chat with us and other listeners. All of this is done using the free Internet! (free as in speech, not free as in beer)
Today I got an e-mail from the good people at Skype telling me that now I can call anyone in the U.S. or Canada for free. All I need is my computer with my free Skype software. Unreal. They used to make you pay for that, now they are giving that for free as well. Not to mention you can call anyone in the world who has Skype for free. They are also working on free videoconferencing.
If you like what you read, make sure to help fight to keep the Internet as it it. The internet service providers are trying to legislate their way into ending free choice on the internet.
