Marc Andreessen talks about Skype - $2B deal, 40 million new users, network-effect business

Netscape founder Marc Andreessen heads a group that takes a majority interest in Internet phone service provider Skype. $2 billion dollar deal. HP, eBay,
- Skype added 40 million new registered users in the last three months.
- Skype did $185 million in revenue last quarter.
- Right now, it charges to connect calls into and out of the phone system.
- The global market for international long distance is $40 billion right now and Skype has only a small percentage of that.

I am a believer or Marc and anything he touches.

I'm glad ebay still owns some percentage of this. It will be good to track how well this non-core asset does for them.

Ebay - the best corporate non-vc out there?
