Skype engineers were NOT telco specialists

This was the quote that Niklas Zennstrom, Skype CEO, made during VON Europe last week before an overflowing room of attendees. You can download his presentation. The statement is on slide 13, "Why Skype":

Outside-of-the-box technology - none of our engineers were telecom engineers – they just solved the problem

This should put VoIP in a whole different perspective for mainstream application developers.
