This past Saturday, Nov 23, I held a small event called Bot Summit where I invited a bunch of bot makers to speak about the creation of bots. The event took place in Boston and via Google Hangout on Air. We had participants from Boston, New York, Sydney, Melbourne, Toronto, and Puerto Rico, among other locations.
