  • 43x current year revenues.
  • works out to about $20 million/Skype employee

ebay, paypal, skype….I have said it before, but I never have happy thoughts when I watch fusion buys. And who knows, in the end it’s all being taken in by some Warner type of monster. I favour diversity; but rest assured that the next indie gadget is somewhere out there already.
