During lunch Glenn Lim gave his presentation on PayPal and some more numbers:

  • 141,000,000 users

  • 9 years company

  • it's a US$ 2 billion business

  • US$ 3 billion stored in account; spent every 2 weeks

  • It manages 12% of total e-commerce in the world

He spoke about the new Developer Site and API.

Then Peeter Mõtsküla spoke about Skype and (guess what?) gave us some numbers:

  • 28 languages

  • 300,000,000 people connected

  • 100,000,000,000 conversations done so far

He also spoke about the new Skype Developer Site and the new pricing model for the ones who want to have their application to be Skype Certified.

Later on, Mike Miller briefly spoke about his later presentation about ProStore.
