Since first using Skype’s High Quality Video for remote interviews during her weekly “A New Earth” seminars in the spring of 2008, interviews via Skype have become almost a daily occurrence on the Oprah show. A recent one of significance was her launch of her own Twitter feed where she interviewed Ashton Kutcher who now has over 1.8 million Followers. Oprah herself has passed the 1 million Followers mark although she seems to post Tweets infrequently.
Well, it seems that her Harpo Productions team have been busy taking Skype to some “extreme” new end points. According to Skype’s Jennifer Caulkins:
This week, we’re expecting to see Oprah push the limits with Skype even further. Watch Josh Silverman, President of Skype, make an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Thursday, May 21st as part of the “Where the Skype are You?” episode. It’s going to be a fascinating Skype adventure not to be missed as Oprah takes viewers to some surprising places over Skype video.
But here’s where it gets real interesting: if you watch the teaser you start to get a perspective on where Skype has gone to new heights and new depths in this “extreme Oprah Show adventure”.
Thursday, May 21 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. EDT (GMT-4) is blocked out on my Tungle calendars. My only remaining decision is whether to watch an our TV set, via SlingPlayer on my PC or SlingPlayer for Mobile on BlackBerry.
