Today's reports claim that eBay may pay between $2bn and $3bn for Skype. In 2003, when Niklas wanted to start Skype, it was difficult for him to convince sponsers to support his company. Perhaps people hardly could believe that in less than 3 years it would become a multi-billion dollar company!

Now after more than 20 years I have somehow the same feelings in September. When I want to start my teachings for new coming students I can feel again this contrast. Believe me that it is not because of restriction in having fun, but I think it has been become part of my feelings with respect to this time of year after several years. Maybe one of the most important reasons is that weather is going to be cold in this time of the year.
This year I have started a very busy September. First of all I had a summer school in Visby (I think it should be renamed to "fall school!"). It was my first time in Gotland and it was very beautiful. If you are living in Sweden I would recommend you to arrange a trip to Gotland. As a part of my teaching I have also one course which has been started. On the other hand we should measure the chip which we were involved with its design during this year. Also I need to prepare my presentation in IEEE SoC conference and all of these things need time. Anyway this lack of time could be another reason for me to have opposite feelings!
