    Skypecasts: Great new tool for union meetings online - By Eric Lee, LabourStart
    Skype, the pioneers of free online telephone calls, have begun offering what they call Skypecasts. Anyone can sign up, so long as you use Skype. As Skype currently has 113 million users, it is likely that many trade unionists already use the service. Those who do not, but who have Internet access, should be encouraged to do so.

    All you need is a computer, a (fast) Internet connection, headphones and a microphone (ideally a headset) and Skype's free software.

    At any given time, there are currently only about 100 Skypecasts taking place. When I looked, not a single one was being hosted by a union. The number of Skypecasts is low because this software is in its 'preview' stage -- you can use it, but Skype's not heavily promoting it. Yet.
