Remarkable user stories: "This one time on Skype…"
Every day, we see and hear amazing stories from our community about how people are using Skype. Whether it be a virtual wedding, date, classroom fieldtrip, or family reunion, people have shown us time after time what an important role Skype video calling plays in their lives.
Just last week, we read an uplifting story that really drove home the way Skype brings people together across continents. With a baby on the way, while serving in Iraq, Mark Wagner from Massachusetts was not able to be there in-person for that special moment when his wife, Mary, gave birth. But thanks to an understanding hospital staff and a tech-savvy mother-in-law, he was able to witness his child’s birth in real time.
With Mark calling from his computer in Iraq and Mary’s mother capturing the birth using her Skype video calling-enabled iPhone, Mark was able to witness the birth of his baby boy via Skype video call. The Wagner family demonstrated how one’s iPhone, another’s computer, and Skype video calling bridged the gap between an Air Force Base and hospital thousands of miles apart, for one of the most memorable times in a family’s life.
We know that there are thousands of user stories that are just as amazing and innovative as the Wagner’s. Do you have one to share? Leave a comment and let us know.
