Word Association Led me to 17 Year Old VoIP Singer and Entrepreneur

May 6, 2010

Something I enjoy doing ever since I heard Ray Bradbury talk about it on a documentary is word association. This morning, I typed in "art" and "voip" on Google and also Yahoo! search. I clicked on the first item of interest on VoIP-info and found it was actually a spam, nothing to do with VoIP. 

Next, I found a 2005 VoIP Monitor article with the title "Aspiring Teen Pop Singer Launches Own VOIP Service." Intriguing!


The article states that in 2005, there were approximately 11,000 + VoIP providers but definitely room for a new kid on the block.
