Today I had my first Skype call/interview. It was an interesting experience. It was for a podcast that will appear on Talking with Talis once I’ve started my new job. One big tip – find a place without distractions or dogs!! My house has an open floor plan and it’s freezing out today so my pups were indoors and decided to play with each other while I was on the call (something they almost never do).
As for Skype – what a great tool! You can use it to voice or text chat. You can also use it for playing games (like on Meebo) and other things I haven’t figured out yet 🙂 It’s free to download and install – so you have nothing to lose by trying it out.
If you’re interested my Skype username is the same as all my others “nengard”
