Perfectly and properly proprietary

I like Martin's thoughts on using proprietary technology vs using open standards. With Skype as an example. Although I remember reading a comment from Niklas Zennström, Skype's founder, that, looking back, he would have preferred to use open standards. But I can't find it anymore...

"Skype’s network is proprietary, closed, and — yes — potentially downright dangerous in the long term. But I believe in dealing with reality as we find it, rather than an ideal world we wish we could conjure up."
