O'Reilly Media (as in, the book people) and StrikeIron (who consider themselves to be "The leader in live data and business functionality over the Web") have announced a "Telephony Mashup Contest". Entries need to be in by the 20th of February, and "is timed to conclude on the first day of the O'Reilly Emerging Telephony Conference where finalists will demonstrate their mashup at the conference" - so I guess if you're not going to ETEL, there might not be much point nor is there much point if you're heading off to ETEL and you don't live in the US (excluding Arizona, Vermont, Colorado, Connecticut, [Maryland?] and North Dakota) or Canada (excluding Quebec). I'm not sure why there's a question around Maryland, but that's what it says in the rules. Still, if you are one of the privileged few allowed to enter, you'd better hurry.
