        There is an open standard being developed by the major browsers called WebRTC which, when ready for prime time, will turn the Skype-like industry on its head. Just wait, it is coming and it is open and free.

        Not anymore, no, skype is no longer secure, after it was bought by MS.

        An open-source Skype alternative would be great, but if you fully read the wall street journal article you've linked, you'll see that Skype does not have a security problem. In fact Skype is so secure that wiretappers have resorted to using trojans to install keyloggers. Perhaps these activists just need a site explaining how to identify emails which contain viruses/wiretapping bugs.
