Skype is a chat system, from the makers of kazaa i believe... skype cast is a massive chat of up to 100 people.

I thought with Skypecasts only a limited number of people can talk, the rest can only listen?
More like a live podcast than a discussion?

It's up to the Skypecast moderator. Here's more info:

"You may wish to run your Skypecast as an open discussion or a one-way broadcast with questions and answers at the end. Either way, the Skypecasts moderation tools will help you. When you’re in the Skypecast, you’ll be able to mute or unmute selected participants or all participants. Muting participants will also improve call quality for yourself and your participants. When participants are muted, they can request the microphone if they wish to speak. You can use chat to ask them what they wish to talk about and can then allow them to talk when you’re happy with what they wish to add to the Skypecast. If you find that particular participants are being disruptive you can even eject them from the Skypecast."

Seems like a waste of time and effort, but that's just me. Enjoy your cast...

I'd probably listen, but I'm not a talkative one (there's a reson I only have four posts per day).

That's why I said "Enjoy your cast"...

I think I'll like this, because I love awkward silence.

Wow, you guys just don't like any disagreement when you ask a question, do you? Why not just delete my comment and forget about it....

I have no problem with disagreements. I think you are the one with the problem. I think you comment before you know what your commenting on. HAHA! really, waste of time and effort. A host pressing the on button and every client joining the host, does not seem like any effort.

lol wow.

Yes, apparently I AM the one with the problem. Thanks for the psychoanalysis (and the rep points). :rolleyes:

Haven't decided yet, but if we do hold it, it will definitely be communicated in Announcements.
