We all sometimes end up in situations that we'd rather not be in. From annoying coworkers to bad blind dates, sometimes a way out can be rather convenient. As technology advances, new ways of getting out of such situations are often showing up. One of these is the Fake Call API, designed to send phone calls to your phone via a web API call.
BroadSoft's recent announcement of their new RESTful API and the supporting mashup contest is another sign that larger telephone operators will soon support "Web as a Platform" application development.
