Tech Startup of the Week: Kaliki App-In Car Integration Allows Customers to Listen and Drive


The written word isn’t dead yet. To the contrary, it’s more alive than it’s ever been before thanks to Tirrell Payton and Bruce Hopkins, founders of BT Software and Research. The duo launched Kaliki Audio Newstand , a spoken word platform that allows consumers to access their favorite written content on-demand, anytime — in-car, online and on the go.

Both partners have a technology background, the merging of their skill sets was a match made in auto heaven. While Hopkins worked for three of the top auto manufacturers, Payton was an integral part of Yahoo Media Group and worked as a senior engineer on some of Yahoo’s streaming media properties, including Launchcast Radio and Yahoo Music Jukebox.
