Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is giving a speech at the company's headquarters today where he's expected to announce a video partnership with Skype. We'll have longer takes as the day goes on, but here's what happening in real-time, along with streaming video.
1:38 p.m. It almost felt like the chat overhaul took a backseat to news about Facebook's news servers. Again, Adam Clark Estes was kind enough to ping us with this explanation: "The message that the servers and stuff sends is that Facebook is an innovator, an engineer's company. It's an interesting squeeze into the hardware business for Facebook, but also sounds like a rally cry for app developers to use Facebook--sounds like these serves will have capabilities that other won't."
1:35 p.m. For those who like milestones: Zuckerberg confirms the site has hit 750 million users.
1:29 p.m. Phillip Su is the "engineer on the video calling team" who scooped Zuckerberg on the Facebook blog. Since his post is still up, here's what he had to say about the origins of Skype partnership: "So a few months ago, we started working with Skype to bring video calling to Facebook. We built it right into chat, so all your conversations start from the same place. To call your friend, just click the video call button at the top of your chat window."
