Today’s guest created a company called GrandCentral which sold to Google and became Google Voice.

It was his second foray into voice over IP. Before that, he had one of the pioneering companies that he led in voice over IP, called Dialpad. Their mission was to do free web-based phone calls, and they pivoted and adjusted.
