Jan Geinart has blogged that the Skype protocol has been cracked. Michael Arrington has picked up on this as well. For me it ain’t verified yet, but it sounds plausible, given it was bound to happen sooner or later.
How does this change the game you might ask? Firstly, Meg and her eBay exec team need to recalibrate superfast …the supernode paradigm has shifted. Secondly, this will make a great test case for our legal friends — can they pierce the China veil (since the cracking has allegedly occured in this terrain), given that Skype is persona non China at present.
