Musician Frank Bell doesn’t miss a beat using Skype at TED2014 panel

Some of the world’s most innovative ideas were shared at the TED2014 conference in Vancouver, Canada last month, and Skype was there to facilitate conversations with folks such as astronaut Chris Hadfield, Oscar-nominated director Jehane Noujaim and Sports Illustrated reporter David Epstein.

Also participating in the conference was Skype’s Music Brand Ambassador, Frank Bell. Bell, a classically trained cellist who loves experimenting with numerous musical styles including funk, soul and pop, joined the conversation using Skype from his Brooklyn apartment as part of the “Power and Potential of Kickstarter” panel hosted by musician Amanda Palmer.
