GrandCentral co-founder back at the VoIP drawing board?
The founder of GrandCentral--which eventually became Google Voice--apparently is back in his old stomping grounds. Craig Walker, who sold the VoIP technology to Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) for some $50 million back in 2007 recently tweeted that he was "Starting to play around with a bunch of VoIP ideas...time to take this incubator thing into hyperdrive :)."
Walker, who ended up working for Google, then Google Ventures, founded incubator Firespotter Labs--which is funded by Google Ventures and includes several of his Grand Central team members--last May.
As TechCrunch asks: "Is Walker developing Grand Central 2.0?"
