I had the pleasure of working with Matthias Wandel of Woodgears this past week, testing out a new object-oriented version of Skype.

This could completely revolutionize woodworking. People from around the world can collaborate on actual projects in real time.

We each documented our demonstration and decided to release our videos today for you to evaluate.

There are still a few bugs in the software, but for the most part, the new Skype is well worth checking out.

Steve,

I think the software is a crap shoot. It only seems to work sometimes. I don’t think the odds are in your favor right now to throw it on the market just yet.

It looks like a interesting concept. As usual a very cool video. Now I’m holding a piece of paper on my key board could you reach through and give me your autograph .

Steve,

Be careful, Be Very Careful.

David Cronenberg tried this very techknowledgy back in 1986 and Jeff Goldblum didn’t fair so well, as I remember it turned him into a “FLY”.
Come to think of it, Matthias Wandel has a slight resemblence to Jeff.

Looking forward to the next release.

What Super set of Videos!

Absolutely Fantastic!

Special effects are SO WONDERFUL!

I have Skype… but have not heard of anything New…
... What have they done to make it able to do this?!

How did you get the effects done of things going Through the computer screen?!
... Just AWESOME!

The whole thing looked a real Magical CrapShoot… LOL

Both of you… Thank you very much!

Great Job!
