SightSpeed CEO on Skype

Just got a note from SightSpeed’s Peter Csathy regarding the Skype outage and the blogosphere wondering aloud of this is a P2P doomsday scenario.
 
Here’s Peter:
 
Obviously, the Skype outage is big news – and several industry pundits are now wondering if Skype’s troubles expose previously unexposed vulnerabilities to all P2P models.  This is a critical question right now because literally billions of dollars are at stake -- (eBay lost nearly $1 billion valuation in the past 48 hours alone per TechCrunch)
 
The answer is a critical “no” – i.e., all P2P models are NOT created equal…
 
Peter is inviting people to check out a blog entry written by SightSpeed CTO Aron Rosenberg, which explains the differences between the various types of P2P.

Ironically, I just installed Microsoft’s Office Communicator this week for IM’ing my colleagues here in the office, so I’m not really missing Skype too much.
 
Still I’m fairly confident that once this issue is finally completely patched up, Skype will return stronger for the experience.
