Cisco Bigwig Joins Skype Board

Jeff Pulver pointed on his Blog to a story on The by Scott Moritz I also consider very interesting.

Jeff : "I just read a story on which said that a senior Cisco executive, Mike Volpi, has joined the board of Skype.

Now things are starting to get...shall we say...interesting?

Cisco, the company that has yet to meet a protocol that it doesn't like may very well be working with Skype to implement their non-standard firewall piercing technology into their family of routers and other edge devices. This would be a move that would keep Skype technology proprietary and give both them and Cisco the edge in delivering real-time communication services in what would otherwise be hostile working enviornments"
