In my opinion he was a really important person for the “marketing” of Skype. And, i loved the fact that he always permitted criticism on Skype in the forums, and even discussions about competing products. Yes … very clever to listen to the Skype Users and what they say about Jajah, VoIPStunt and others!
From a “very good source”, i know that Ike Roelfsema (see my previous post in this blog) will take over a big part of his job. I happen to know Ike already quite a long time (i however never met her … i cyber-know her or skype-chat-and-call-know her).
Good choice … she is a nice person, and it is probably a gift for her to be able to combine her Skype-hobby-passion with a job!
Congratulations and good luck Ike!
