@gliechtenstein I would pay to have an app like this built/hosted for me. *hint hint*

@jtzou but seriously, can this be white labeled? Not even sure where that gets us- but sounds interesting. Mack needs an app.

@gliechtenstein I'd love one of these for myself too! It's especially interesting for marketing/engagement purposes when you consider: email < sms < push notifications...

@miles_matthias I have the white label solution for this :). No, seriously. With an ability for you to segment "your" app users and send bulk messages as well :)

I think this could scale if Ethan can hire more people named Ethan.

@rrhoover I like "Some Guy Named Ethan Made An App Called 'Ethan' That Lets Anyone Message Him. What Happened Next Will Blow Your Mind" better

So bespoke. :) I like experimental products. What's the idea behind this, @gliechtenstein?

@rrhoover I wanted a fast way for my friends to message me--simply by opening the app--which is the only feature of the app. Also I've been off Facebook for a while so this is one way for people to reach me. Plus I own all the data. Also I can cut off annoying people easily if I wanted to. But then random people started downloading and I became sort of a virtual assistant at one point, finding music for romantic dinner or animes with dragons for them. Sometimes it's hard because they keep asking me questions while i'm sleeping. That's why I added the rules on the home page. I can see many different ways this can go (Already I'm meeting so many people coming from PH). But imagine a world where everyone can have their own chat app. You can have your own Ryan app easily if you wanted to! I posted here because I wanted to know what all the imaginative people on ProductHunt can see in this. Would love thoughts.

Thanks for the lunch recommendations, Ethan (@gliechtenstein). This is actually quite interesting. @itamarok compared it to everyone's favorite AIM bot, SmarterChild. (cc @beller @shaanvp) What kind of questions do people ask?

@gliechtenstein Off the top of my head this would be great way for people seeking to ask questions about the bible to send them to me.

@rrhoover bespoke apps are the new black. I think they are starting to become status symbols for some. Also, @gliechtenstein did we just help you pass the Turing Test?

@rrhoover One of the few times I've seen 'bespoke' used accurately and non-ironically. Or was it ironically?
