Pass the Skype please

My sister was at my table for dinner last night. It was a real treat because she was in NY and I was in Colorado. We were able to share stories, toast our drinks, laugh, and make plans. The only thing was I couldn’t reach across and taste her apple cobbler.

Have you used Skype yet? It’s the kind of technology that opens doors, windows and removes barriers.  I can wish Happy Birthday to my sister in Ireland, watch the Discovery blast off with my brother in Florida or watch my niece make pizza for her family in NJ.

I can watch my family grow up, move to new places, celebrate accomplishments, and feel as if I’m there.

Skype is free. You need a camera and a microphone which most laptops already have.

If you use it, let me know what you think.
If you don’t you don’t know what you’re missing!

  1. Yes, I have Skype and I use it, but not exclusively. It differs, depending on who we want to talk to. G’s son in QC uses only the video function in MSN Messenger. Myself, I like to use the phone thing in Gmail every now and then when I don’t feel like doing the video thing.

    It’s a great thing to have nowadays, with a shrinking planet, so to speak.
