We have defined a Skype Group for this Development called "Video Chat Application". If you want to contribute and the development and testing of videochats toolkits (for example) please indicate so. If it is the case we will add you to the Skype group.
Another project is dedicated the evolution of the Skype place. Skype is great but it harbours several limitations. 2nd life is known to be great place for conferences and we might be given some room in a few months. Many other software exists all with their on limitations. The goal is to create a collaborative community, where we see faces of each other, it is easy to use Skype (and not a Forum), it is very affordable and ideally free, it is very scalable (videochat with many persons) and connected to Aging Research Projects.
There are channels to other specific Projects under the name of the ILA. Collaborative Projects associated to the ILA including those relate to information technology are listed here [http://www.denigma.de/experts/collaborations/?labs=555].
