Skype bounty signals bubble

Skype, the free VoIP peer to peer service started by the founders of Kazaa raised $18.8 million in series B funding. The investors are Draper Fisher Juvertson and Index Ventures. DFJ was one of the most active dot com investors and helped fueled the bubble. Looks like they are doing it again. Despite whatever the press might say, and how much fans of Skype might rave about the company, I still don’t see a business model. Sure great Idea, not such great business. I mean if today Hotmail was a free standing company, it would be bleeding money. Skype will be no different.
