Botwiki Updates #5
I’ve done more updates to the overall design of Botwiki and as I run out of free reviews from peek.usertesting.com for this month, I’d really love to get some feedback from you, dear readers! You can use the usual contact channels: email or Twitter.
- Hugo turned Paul Ford‘s Government 2.0 generator website into a bot.
- Jason‘s @SatelliteEurope will keep an eye on the weather in Europe for you
- @TellATweetTale, a bot by Kristin Siu, turns your tweets into stories
- check out Rob Dubin‘s weekend project @wholeearthradar (also on Tumblr)
- and finally, Ranjit and the editors of Motherboard look at what the future holds for all of us
And don’t forget to browse the most recently added Twitter bots.
