Previously skype had a product called Skypecast that enabled many (in theory
hundreds) people to join a talk, have a moderator etc. For free.
But since September 1st 2008 it's discontinued (
AFAIK a regular skype voice conference call can host maximum 25 people.
The idea of having this kind of voice conf is excellent, I'd definitely join
from time to time!

What are the limitations of skype re number of users ? I thought it
only a few.
Other options are elliminate, bit that means only a few can speak at a
time, and the voice quality is limited, we we can share notes and a
whiteboard and host as many people as needed (I have tested the client on
windows, mac, and Linux and it works, just not as nice as skype).
