Youï¿½re seeing live calls as OnSIP customers pick up the phone. When an OnSIP customer makes a call, a pin drops. When an OnSIP customer receives a call, a pin drops.
This works because OnSIP is - at its core - a communications platform built on software. We created a live UDP stream of OnSIP customer call data with IP addresses of each end point (phone). We used IP2Location to get the lat/long for each IP address, and then plotted these points via the Google Map API.

Today's mashup of the day, the crowdsourced playlist creator, marks telephony-as-a-service provider Twilio's 100th mashup added to the ProgrammableWeb directory. The tremendous interest in the Twilio platform put it in the top five APIs of 2010 by mashup count. In this post, we'll look at three Twilio applications that have recently received funding.
