I've currently got 534 contacts. Of these 257 have got good enough address detail to be able to get a single location in Google Maps. Skype is reporting that 233 of those contacts were last online this year. The intersection of the two is 67 people online this year and with address detail.

Now I've been collecting Skype contacts since the very early days so I may have a disproportionate number of old and dead entries. But a rule of thumb suggests that maybe 25% of someone's contact list can successfully be mapped.

Which then raises the question. Why don't people fill in their profiles on Skype? And when they do, why don't they fill them in accurately? There's 117 entries online this year but with blank country.
