The Engadget Interview: Niklas Zennström

Niklas Zennström is the CEO and co-founder of Skype. I have been using Skype for some time now and found it very good both in terms of sound quality, cost effectiveness and ease of use.

When Roni was presenting Fablusi to the US Army, I was listening to his whole presentation via Skype and was able to jump in to make additional comment here in Melbourne. It was a good experience.

This interview is interesting in several ways:

  • The look into the mindset of the CEO of a company which is developing a disruptive technology to compete with big telcom.

  • The implication of business model when we are in the digital age where the marginal cost of reproduction is near to zero.

  • I am also excited as they are also planning to third party developer to integrate the Skype technology into other application. Fablusi will be holding its hand up high immediately.
