Many of our recent “free calls” initiatives have been circling around North America recently. This leaves the rest of you worried, as we’ve seen it in comments. Fear not, for we are working on expanding the scope of these activities, as you can also see with the [Gift Days](http://blogs.skype.com/sites/en/2006/07/skype_gift_days_july_schedule.html). I know that Henry Gomez who assumed the “chief marketer” position in Skype just last week is very keen on this and will post his own updates here shortly.
