Steven Sokol has pointed out a bounty that has been put up to run Asterisk on the Apple TV:
Apple TV Hacks are please to announce the second in our series of bounties! $500 has been put up by Sokol & Associates for the first team to get the open source PBX system, Asterisk, running on an Apple TV.
Asterisk is a complete IP PBX in software; PBX being a telephone exchange system like you may find in your office. It runs on a wide variety of operating systems including Linux, Mac OS X, OpenBSD, FreeBSD and Sun Solaris and supports Voice over IP in many protocols, and can interoperate with almost all standards-based telephony equipment using relatively inexpensive hardware.
In addition the winner will also receive an all access pass to the AstriCon conference and exhibition this fall in Phoenix, Arizona (worth $550).
