i know that skype is nothing new; i’ve been using it for at least three years in both my personal life and my business life. but every once in a while i am reminded at just how cool it is. when you can sit for an hour and chat with your sister who is 7,625 km away from me (and 4.5 hours in time zone difference) and have it not cost you a cent; or when you can talk to a friend who you maybe haven’t spoken to in about 6 months because you couldn’t find the time…and then there they are on skype at the same time as you and whammo – before you know it you’ve been given a video tour of their new apartment!
technology is wicked.
and it makes it seem like home (in the sense of the people) is not that far away at all.
