Hey Kiki Baessell – I’m Your New Biggest Fan

After today’s extended outage for Skype and their “explanation” that they need to make more super and mega-supernodes – I’m cozying up to my new best friend, Kiki Baessell – the voice behind Google Voice.

With Google’s recent announcement that they’re going to extend the free U.S. and Canada calling through 2011, Google has become much more attractive.

Also, since I was supposed to renew my Skype number tomorrow and PAY for another 3 months – I’m just not feeling comfortable with that after today.

Am I over-reacting? I don’t think so. I’ll maintain Skype for it’s IM functionality, but will now be doing the majority of my internet telephony calls using my Google Voice number.

To learn how to get yourself hooked up with Google Voice watch the video below.

Plus, if it’s good enough for Santa, Google Voice is good enough for me.
