Vonage Co-Founder Talks Up Ham Radio

Vonage co-founder Jeff Pulver, WA2BOT, recently credited ham radio as one of the major factors behind his role in developing the VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology that allows thousands of people to use the internet as their long-distance phone service.
According to an article in, Pulver told an audience at the TwiloCon convention in San Francisco in September that amateur radio "unlocked my connection to voice over IP," and that his career in software began with writing a ham radio logging program.
