I often use Skype as a way to stay connected for new business, at home and while traveling for video conference calls.

How important is Skype? Bill Gates personally pushed for the Skype deal, the biggest purchase in Microsoft’s history. It seems to have a very bright future and should remain on your list of tools to watch and warrant your participation.

I thought you might enjoy the following infographic that contains a host of very interesting information on Skype, and its walk from being nothing but an idea, to its acquisition by Microsoft.
