Open talk

Skype and Google Talk are to interoperate. This is good news, not only for users of both systems, but for the Internet at large: Google Talk runs on open standards. Such a deal could mean Google Talk serves as a gateway between Skype and other clients that run on open standards, for example Gizmo.

A global, interoperable, free voice network would not be a small thing: very bad news for the phone companies, perhaps, but excellent news for us.
