My colleague Allen Fear calls it video chat
, while the Associated Press calls it video calling
. What really got me excited, though, was when Small Biz Technology called it free "videoconferencing
," which I guess means a group of people able to have a meeting online, via video, without paying for the privilege.
I'm still gathering details on this in-beta video tool from Internet telephony (or VoIP) company Skype, but if it is free videoconferencing, then wow.
