@electrobabe Great product! I used it in my town, Wichita, KS, and got a few decent places, although I'd say there are a few more under-the-radar hipster places then what it showed, plus some places I wouldn't define as hipster. How do you currently decide what is hipster and what isn't?

@linkchef I'm glad you like the bot! :) well, I designed a special algorithm to check for hip places worldwide: I look up hipster venues in difference APIs such as Foursquare, Yelp, Google Places and Facebook Places and merge the data to display it to the user with a Facebook Messenger chat bot

Mica passed the test. SF's Zeitgest and Sightglass are hipster.

Great example for what kind of Facebook messenger bots we will see going fwd: Poncho gives you ⛅️ weather. Mica gives you recommendations of ☕️ hipster cafes and restaurants around you (or in other places).

@electrobabe Just curious, because I'm in Brazil, so where you get the recommendations is an important info :) btw what technologies were used?

@electrobabe btw, that's my interaction with the product: - would love to see it speak more "naturally" (especially when it asks How I am, I replied happy, it didn't get it)
