Skype as Social Network: SkySpace

While everyone is talking about Skype’s new pricing plan1 this week, we got a note this morning from a company called Bertorello announcing a product called SkySpace, which the company says is “the first social network for Skype.” SkySpace is actually a renamed, retooled version of Skype work collaboration tool called Verosee, which Argentina-born CEO Pablo Bertorello developed. Verosee (which I looked at a year ago) is a pretty unmarketable name — not like the buzzy moniker you get when you mash-up hot property names Skype and MySpace, ie SkySpace. We downloaded it onto a PC (no Mac) and basically its an easier way to do file-sharing for Skype users (Skype users can already transfer files). The application enables users to share files like photos and videos, both privately to another user or publicly to the broader community. Users can also personalize their SkySpace homepage, which the company says will jump-start social connections. The application appears to be Skype-certified, and is available in the Skype’s extra’s page.

  • I work in the IT department with the company I’m at and we to have had people leave recently although for different reasons than the schools. We have had a high turn over rate due to the implementation of Data Center Automation. A few people have left for other jobs but most have left because they’ve had a hard time getting their head around the concept of IT Automation.

    I’ve never been happier though since we put Run Book Automation into play. I’ve had far less headaches trying to trouble shoot the many viruses that penetrate our network every day. It’s also helped us get a better handle on the email issues the company has had in the past.
