Experimenting with Chatbots

The best way to learn about bots is to build and experience them.

For my business bot I used OctaneAI.com, a chatbot creation platform that specifically allows you to create 'conversational articles' or 'convos'.

For my personal bot I used Chatfuel.com, a WYSIWYG chatbot creation platform with all the main Facebook Messenger capabilities and even some Artificial Intelligence functions.

An updated web presence

Today, after more than 10 (!) years, I updated VIRVIE.com. It was long overdue, but I was just too fond of the original design.

The original site, or VIRVIE vintage, is still available (just follow the link), because I think it's important to also preserve our digital heritage.

It also marks the end of VIRVIE's ventures in the Web and App space. One of these ventures was the creation of PeRSoN.NeL. It started out as a web based URL shortener, which allowed to at mini artworks to your links. It then evolved into an Augmented Reality App which allowed a user to show these same artworks, and now even in 3D, on there location in reality.

After this the App pivoted into diary App, which is still available from PRSN.NL, but no longer maintained.
