    This will be my maiden skypecast with over seas friends 🙂 on a more specific topic. It’s a date. Sorry I can’t share Malaysian fruits virtually –> http://www.marimari.com/content/malaysia/best_of/fruits/fruits.html (would be a good preview, and invitation to come here for holidays!)

    hello dj – sorry to be a stone-age internet user, but how does a skypecast work? i’d like to participate, but i’m not 100% sure what it is 😀 do i need to sign up on the skype site? is it like an online chat or more like talking over the telephone? thanks!!

    Daniel,

    Skype is a free software that you can download at http://www.skype.com (PC, Mac, Linux) that enables you to make voice (and video) calls over the Internet. Yes, you’ll need to sign up after you get the software installed, and you’ll need a broadband Internet connection. A Skypecast is similar to talking on a conference call.

    (We did play with the idea of setting up a dial-in conference call for this monthly event, but we’re more attracted to the free cost of doing a skypecast for now.)

    Hey DJ,

    This sounds great. However, since it’ll be work time in Bangkok, I’ll try to get on and listen, if I don’t have something else lined for that time. If I can contribute, I’ll try to bring some Asian-Canadian perspectives to the table 🙂

  5. DJ,
    I have done skype before, but have no idea how I did it. Do I dial something? What do I do if I want to listen in?

    Scot: Make sure your Skype client is turned on, then browse to https://skypecasts.skype.com/skypecasts/skypecast/detailed.html?id_talk=21932 on Sunday night, and you’re welcome to listen in! (I can put you on mute, or you can mute yourself.)

    I had a great time! Thanks DJ, and everyone for “including” me 🙂 Group Huh anyone?

  9. Sivin says:

    I think I meant “Group HUG”! But part of conversations include “Huh?” …
