I had the pleasure of meeting with the Skype team over the past few months and helping Alpha test their new Skype Professional Accounts - basically, everything we love about Skype along with the integration of PayPal and Calendar apps, note taking, and a professional online marketplace for business owners.

At the end of the process I traveled to Palo Alto, CA to meet the team and get a tour of the Skype headquarters. Skype has been so supportive around my Skype violin, viola, and fiddle teaching studio, and featured me in an article on their blog last week:
