(George), Konstantin and Chris R have been working tirelessly over the last few days to successfully implement a Skype/IRC bridge (Microsoft's recent updates certainly didn't help).
This means now we can now link several Skype channels together along with IRC so that there is no longer a limit on the amount of people that can take part in Ethereum discussions
We also hope to integrate Whisper based chat ÐApps in the future.
Now we are finished, we cordially invite everyone in the community to join the channel and partake in Ethereum discussions!
If you're not already in, feel free to add george_hallam or mephistom on Skype and we'll drop you into the channel.
