The following is from Forbes of July 2.

What does “even Skyping into some of those business meetings and conferences” mean in this context? The preposition “into” is the point in question.

The truth is, we’ve always been encouraged to travel. And as populations become more diverse, being exposed to other people and other cultures has been a great way to open people’s eyes to the rest of the world. In the meantime, we can think about alternate ways of traveling, closer destinations, lighter packing, and yes, 〈even Skyping into some of those business meetings and conferences〉. But we should all be ready for the more serious ethical discussion headed our way.

Hi, Fujibei,

"into" is used to indicate movement. "skyping into meetings and conferences" would refer to using Skype to "move" from wherever you are connected into those meetings and conferences away from your home or your office. "into" is used because technology allows you to participate in those meetings by enabling that virtual, non-physical attendance from some external place.
