Skype + Google Maps = MapMe for Skype

+ =
Kevin Delaney has made a guest posting on the Skype Journal blog about an interesting new project involving the Google Maps API and the popular Internet calling app known as Skype. He writes: "MapMe for Skype is a free plugin that connects your Skype contact list with technology from Google Maps" The plugin will allow you to:
  • calculate distances between your contacts,
  • map incoming SkypeIn calls,
  • find users in your area and much more.
Kevin is looking for 50-100 beta testers that meet the following criteria:
  • Use any version of Skype since 1.1
  • Use Windows 2000 or XP
  • have the Microsoft .NET Framework v1.1 (we can help you get it)
  • Decent technical knowledge
  • Live in the USA or Canada
If you're interested in being a part of this closed beta test, sign up here. I'll keep Skype users updated on the status of this new KhaosLabs plugin when it becomes available.
