I was curious about the big move to chatbots, and how that applies to Contactually and user interfaces in general. So, as an exploration, I built a simple bot that runs on Slack. And just for fun, it’s a bot that lets you hurl insults extracted from Shakespeare’s works.
Say hello to Angry Shakespeare.
Building a chatbot is a refreshing experience. With the incredible fragmentation + complication of contemporary UI development, the constraints posed by a limited text I/O is a lot of fun. We’re already exploring how this applies to Contactually.
