eBay's Bet: The Skype's the Limit

When I talked to Meg Whitman last week, we used plain old telephones. But since both of us belong to the 54 million-member Skype community—a global society one joins simply by signing up to use that company's voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) service—we could have had the conversation free via laptops and our Net connections. Or she could have Skyped me (yes, it's a verb) from her computer to my land line, paying a couple of cents a minute. It would have been appropriate because eBay CEO Whitman has just spent $2.6 billion of her company's cash and stock to buy Skype, a move that seems destined to become a marker of cataclysmic change.

It's a Wiki World

When Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web 15 years ago, he always intended that it should be easy for people to write to it, not just read from it. But if websites are opened up to anyone, they often get vandalised by people with axes to grind. Now, a researcher from Manchester has brought together two of computing's current buzzwords - the Grid, and Wikis - to overcome this problem. A Wiki is a web site where users can easily add and edit its content. Although some Wikis ask contributors to pick a username and password, people running the sites have no idea who their users really are, and the better known Wikis have to be constantly on the look out for offensive or just irrelevant additions. The new open source software, GridSiteWiki, combines the functions of a Wiki with user authentication based on security tools developed for Grid computing. Dr Andrew McNab of Manchester University, who developed the new software, will be speaking on Grid security at the UK e-Science All Hands Conference in Nottingham on Thursday.
