Asterisk and Google Wave: 10 ideas

Now that Google wave invites have started going out - lets see how long it will take for some wave - Asterisk integration. If you have already received you wave invite and are interested in developing, here are some ideas you may wish to consider:

  1. Conference app - control the conference and invite users to join from within wave
  2. VM bot - alerting you to new vm, allowing playback, etc
  3. Call popup's with new caller info - not sure how annoying/useful this could be
  4. Click-to-call - initiate a call from with in wave
  5. Queue control/stats - log in/out of a queue, see real time stats
  6. Status - have asterisk update you wave status in real time with you on the phone/available status (is there even such a concept in wave? I really need an invite already!)
  7. Fax - fax a wave via asterisk!
  8. Receive faxes - although you would be simpler to just have your faxes forwarded to email
  9. Day/night mode - toggle your system call flow via a Day/Night style module
  10. Parking lot - view real-time parking lot stats, grab a caller out of the lot
