Ok so this isnt a revolutionary new product.... but something I built in a way I've not seen before. I thought about creating a personal bot that would be easy to keep populating....I use Save to Pocket for saving all sorts of things and thought why not build a bot that gets updated when I save stuff, like what Im reading, podcasts, music, products I upvote, hunt etc. So in an hour on Tuesday eve, instead of being scary... I built it. And you can too I wrote the How-To guide on Medium This is not necessarily meant to be super useful for anyone in particular except me. But maybe you want your own for whatever reason. Its a first attempt and things need to be better but its an interesting way to do it I think

Really cool. why can't we try to automate all the task you did and create the bot within minutes ? 🤔
Ben TossellMaker@bentossell · newCo
@devenbhooshan this was an experiment to see if I could do it and without having to do anything different day-to-day. I save to pocket everyday as it is. But doing it in minutes would be cool... although Im not confident in that being the case.

@bentossell all the data is pulled from the pocket feeds right ? we can just use that to create the bot which will pull all the data from the rss feeds ? correct me If I am assuming something :)
Ben TossellMaker@bentossell · newCo
@devenbhooshan Thats what it already does ;) pulls the data from the RSS feeds
