Pittsburgh 2.0: Talkshoe Strolls Into Town

Tuesday evening I ran into Talkshoe, a Pittsburgh startup offering free teleconferencing services for up to 250 consumers at a time, over a regular phone.


Talkshoe just launched a widget that can be used within many types of established groups such as those at Yahoo, Google, Facebook, MySpace and more.


Dave Nelsen, the CEO of Talkshoe, said business is great, and that the company has been growing at over 100 per cent per quarter since the service was launched 18 months ago. It reached 3 million users in the most recent quarter.
