Over the past 3 years, I have grown more and more dissatisfied with skype, its business model, and its trustworthiness. Then every few months I run in to a new article pointing out something stupid skype has done... or It does something involving me that just seems down right idiotic.
The latest one, is they are being accused of selling personal information on one of their users to their previous affiliation. They gave out personal information of a teenaged wikileaks supporter to paypal. This was done without a warrant, without any government involvement, just buddy buddy sharing of private information.
Then with all the hubbub over the chinese spying, americans demanding the ability to spy on communications, and so forth... I'm about done.
I'm running a teamspeak server, and murmur/mumble server... if folks want to voice chat me, they can get on there. Video confrencing I almost never do, but if they want to, they can join me on a google hangout, or in googletalk.
If I need to show my desktop there is join.me or livestream.
So i'm going to open my murmur/mumble server to anyone to use... nes.mooo.info
