Telephony Meets Television: Twilio & Boxee Developer Contest + Hackathon

How will you mashup Boxee and Twilio?  Come up with a creative, unique, new way to combine telephony and television and you could win a Boxee Box.

Over the next two weeks, we’ll be sharing ideas for how you might combine our two APIs to combine SMS and voice calls with internet television viewing.
