Skype photo essay 1

Today I had lunch with Niklas Zennstrom. The last time we met for lunch, Skype for Windows CE was still a prototype. Things have clearly changed a lot since then. I'm not going to blog what we talked about today, but I have gotten his agreement to let me do an in-depth interview in the future, which I hope will go beyond what we normally see. Instead, here are some photos from the office, which I think tells us a lot about the company.

Skype occupies inconspicuous serviced office space in an unremarkable sidestreet in Soho. The only hint of extravagance is the frosted glass logo in the doorway, and we're talking about a pane of glass about the size of a PC screen.
