Skype's video had its first live public test… and passed
Skype’s Niklas Zennström and board member Tim Draper just finished an hour-long interview from Skype’s engineering office to a conference for 200 people at [www.alwayson-network.com](http://www.alwayson-network.com) in
Stanford, California. They used Skype video and their pretty faces were beamed up on two gigantic screens with top video and audio quality. The audience were VERY impressed (not with what they had to say but just seeing them). Super thanks to everyone at Skype team involved in developing video, and setting up the event on both sides (standard PC-s and web cams were used).

This is still an internal testing version, so don’t yet ask how or where can you get it and how exactly it looks and works. But as you see, we’re getting closer. We’ve been waiting for this a long time — work on video started more than a year ago, and we’ve come a long way.
