E’ una notizia per i programmatori, che potranno interfacciarsi con Skype e inventare mille nuovi modi di integrarlo nei propri programmi; e per noi utenti, che potremo scegliere tra una varietà di nuovi giocattoli:
“The Skype API has huge potential. It will immediately provide opportunities not available with other messaging services and has potential to grow a whole new market for information services. My belief is simple. If Skype’s API release is successful then not only will growth accelerate, it will gain a huge innovation advantage, bootstrapping on resources that as a small company they could otherwise not afford.
That’s been the successful software model for awhile – releasing beta versions and getting developers to build their own applications around it.“
