Is this the same John Edelson who was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cameroon in the early 80s? I think he was in Sangmelima in the Centre-Sud de Cameroon.

Quick update. The latest news on john's business ventures:
Note Vkidz was always the corporate name of Time4Learning, it was just not used much. Time4Learning is a Florida dba (ie a registered "fictitious name" is the legal term)
