Abby Johnson of WebProNew interviewed the co-founder of Vonage, Jeff Pulver, about VoIP and how the broadband phone company got its start.
Pulver talks about his roots in amateur radio, the first social media, where he learned to “listen, connect, share, and engage with people.”
With no background in telecommunications he accepts that he’s known as the “Forrest Gump of communications” but won’t apologize for being lucky.
Instead, Pulver is focused on his fascination of the evolving social web and how people connect with people.
Having warned phone companies of the challenges they’ll face if they dont understand social media, Pulver’s efforts are now directed to wherever people are having a conversation with iniatives like the 140 Character Conference aimed at the worldwide Twitter community and the effects of real-time internet on businesses.
