Web 2.0 Podcast: Jack Ma

February 15, 2007

In this video from the Web 2.0 summit we see a discussion with Jack Ma co-founder of Interesting whats going on in china’s internet industry. I think you can also see that some americans are thinking china is very underdeveloped. On the other side, its terrifying to see how Jack Ma focuses on business and ignores all ethnical and political issues in china.

Web 2.0 – After Dinner with Niklas Zennstrom

February 13, 2007

I found a bunch of video downloads of the web 2.0 summit presented by O’Reilly. I watched the talk with Niklas Zennstrom, co-founder of the KaZaA peer-to-peer file sharing network and Skype.

It’s interesting to see them speaking about skype and the future of it. Especially in the context of the skype sniffing rumours. Beside that Niklas is talking almost only in marketing language. He tries to avoid different answers and wants to present him and his company in a good light. Nothing really concrete from him. Looking this video reminds me why I’m not that happy with the proprietary skype.

Skype’s reading your bios data

February 7, 2007

You know skype? Everybody knows skype. Yeah it’s a great tool. A lot of people would say it’s no problem that it’s no free software (i.e. the source code is not available for the public). Because the maker of kazaa promised to keep their software free of malware. So.. there is a blog entry from a female hacker which founds out that skype DOES sniff around in your bios data. Hmmm.. so for the promising part… You CAN’T promise a software which is not free software…
