Startup Ribbit seeks to unite telephony and the Web

  • Billing itself as "Silicon Valley's first phone company," startup Ribbit isn't happy with the current state of telephony. Inspired by the fierce innovation of the web over the last decade and the stagnation of traditional telecoms, Ribbit offers a new platform that can combine virtually every mode of communication—VoIP, mobile phones, IM, e-mail, and more. With a plausible business model and a simple platform for developers to build applications on, Ribbit just might have a shot at getting everyone talking.
