I think we talked a little about using Skype before, but does anyone use it? If I wanted to do more interviews and have discussions with different forum members, can you get multiple people on a skype call at the same time?

Can it be recorded as an mp3?

You can get up to 24 people in a conversation on Skype..

All you have to do is click on conference than just add the people you want to talk to and it will automatically call all those people

My skype name is justinpitre

This is fascinating! What type of headset devices do you use for this? Or do you just use a mic and speakers?

I just use a headset

Headsets (http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/webcam_communications/internet_headsets_phones/&cl=us,en)

Just talk in the microphone and listen with your ear phones at the same time....

That's what I use to talk to Luke to help him with his website

Have you ever experimented with recording calls for podcasts?

Also how is the quality with conference calls?

Had a conference call with the guy 3 hrs from here and it was pretty clear. The guy was on webcam and it was awesome.

I downloaded the software. My skype name is GopherHaul. See if you can add me. Although I don't have a headset yet so I don't know if I will be able to take calls with a microphone and headphones.

This is still in a testing phase for me http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Let me know when you add me. Thanks!

Yea, I am experimenting with this right now. Do you have any topics you'd like to discuss? Otherwise, I am just gonna run with it and see what we come up with.

I don't even have a headset now, I just use my headphones and a microphone and it works great.

Yeah I could hear your clearly.. I just find it easier to have a headset that way you don't have to talk directly to the microphone
