ABSTRACT
The article features Internet/services company Jangl of Pleasanton, California. Its chief executive officer (CEO) is Michael Cerda. Its key investors are Storm Ventures, Labrador Ventures, and Cardinal Venture Capital. Through Jangl's Web site, a Web link distributed in email signatures, or widgets posted to social networking profiles, Jangl makes it possible to call and be called without ever divulging one's personal phone number. The free service, launched in 2006, seems to be catching on. Since November 2006, the company has also offered a private service through Match.com and Tagged and has plans to expand its own direct-to-consumer service on a subscription basis later this year 2007.
