Friday night, stayed in, bottle of wine and built this. Its just a fun way to be able to access all of the awesome content @fredwilson has written over the years - you can read his posts as a message, subscribe to get notified of new posts and there is also an interesting feature for chat rooms This lets up to 200 people chat together around certain topics/posts - thought it was interesting so I put it in. Its very basic but does the job, I usually add emojis and a bit more 'fluff' to make it nicer, I may do this if I get any time today but as for now, does the job - also I need to add the rest of the topics. They are all on there, just not linked yet. Let me know what you think

Good job. I think in the world of celebrity bots, VC's are a better bet right now, mostly because you have a target audience that will appreciate both the medium (a bot) and the content so if you trigger alerts for new stories, maybe funding announcements you will see great engagement. BTW I didn't know it was a bot until I clicked through.

Yeah I'm getting interested in bots for things like this. Curated content, discovery on demand. Nice job. What wine were you drinking when you made it?

Looks good Ben 👍 Is this made with Chatfuel? I like the chat room idea, not seen that in a chatbot before
