Who needs traveller miles - get Skype points!

21.05.2005 - 12:17 / filled under default

The channel 9 guy says:

I see Lenn Pryor's fingerprints on this one. Share Skype. A blog kind of thing over on Skype.
And it is the best "corporate blog" I have seen in a long time. It is fun to play around.

WhileI don't like the fact, that only registered people will be able to comment, and I also don't like to type in my skype passport in there (hei - I am creative enough to know what one can do with this kind of user data, connected to blog trails), I totally understand, why their are doing it.

And I was able to login once (it also recognized me) but not anymore - so I can't login for commenting, but the same settings allow me to sign in to the webpage - great *grrrr*)

It needs some more design to really be able to see the different entries - but then again, I get the feed to see new articles and will then jump directly to them.

Login will also provide you with the affiliate code for your Skype Points. Which I think is a great idea, because it felt kind of cheesy to promote Skype for some cents - but points and possible nice gadget like stuff in return - who could resistt? And seems I was not the only one having that feeling:
We’ve had many people ask, "I like Skype and I promote it a lot - can I get something in return?" We launched our paid affiliate scheme just a few weeks ago, but some of you may not be up for cash, or the service may not be available in your country, or for whatever other reason, you might not find the paid affiliate scheme to be most appropriate for you.
Another reason why a blog is great? The forum is unusable. It might be usable if it would be newsserver style, but this amount of postings on a webboard - forget it. So, welcome Skype blog and let's see what we get from you over the next weeks. :)

And now, the new cute banner (yes, it is flash.)
