In 2012: Skype is boring @evanwolff sums it up in Skype Journal

Skype was fun in 2003 to 2005 as Phil notes. What surprises me is that with the depth of passion that users have shown for it – there isn’t the inventiveness and innovation around it anymore. There are so many things that could be done. When Skype launched it really changed the world. If I had a wish for Skype circa 2012 it would be reinvent the mobile space with Tango and Microsoft. They have the loyal users and still have the best audio codec. Video is ok. It is all the other things that Skype could do. It’s time to start trying new stuff… not all of it will stick. A starting point would be a agile biweekly launch program. I don’t see it as all that hard to sketch out.
