Mahesh Paolini-Subramanya



I've been involved in ‘Internet Stuff’ since Day Zero (remember Gopher?), and currently as the CTO of Vocalocity, am building out massively concurrent Erlang based web-scale systems and services. I am also actively involved in the future of Cloud Communications - and particularly in the fusion of synchronous (Voice / Video) and asynchronous (Twitter / SMS / IM / Facebook / Email / etc.) modes of interaction.

I have the - dubious - honor of being involved in creating the first web/e-commerce system, the first java based financial service, as well as the first erlang-based cloud PBX, three projects I may never live down.

My Crunchbase profile is at

I have a Bachelor's degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, and a Masters from the University of Notre Dame.
