When I heard that Randulo had arranged to have Gizmo5‘s Michael Robertson as last weeks VUC guest I just knew that I had to find a way to free up an hour and be on that call. Were you there? If not you should listen to the podcast.
Rather than offer a bunch of commentary about bridging the SIP and Skype realms, which I will save for later, I’ll just say one thing for the moment. Paying $20/year for OpenSky seems to make more sense than paying for a membership in FWD, which I did last summer.
Then word came out of Astricon that Digium had forged a partnership with Skype. The result would be “Skype For Asterisk,” a channel module allowing the integration of Skype into the leading open source IP-PBX platform. A great cheer went up all around VoIP-land. There was much rejoicing.
