Skype Spek

I've learned to love Skype, the telecommuter's dream, the satellite office's lifeline, the podcast producer's best friend. They need better ads. (Do they even place ads?)

Original 1964 ad from Bell Telephone System is here.

  • Albion do a fair bit of work for Skype.


    If I remember they also did a project called skype outside but it doesn't seem to be on their site.


    Interesting though as a fair amount of the online community already use Skype. Or at least you'd assume.

    I'm curious what would happen if they targeted people that were less involved in tech. Although, they may already do that.

  • I've used Skype. I hate it. And I can't really explain why.

  • AT&T attempts to market Picturephone service flopped and flopped and flopped again. For the sad story, see Steve Schnaars and Clif Wymbs, "On the Persistence of Lackluster demand – The History of The Video Phone," Technological Forecasting & Social Change, 71 (3). 197-216. 2004.

    I have a PDF. Let me know if you want a copy.
