What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Introducing NaviChat

Since Chatbots are the so hot right now, I decided to have another go with Chatfuel and build what the world will remember as … the Navibot, the world’s first chat-based navigation bot! Then, however, I typed that into Google and found out that Samsung already has a vacuum cleaner called NaviBot, which doesn’t even navigate. Lame.

Anyway. I then decided to build what the world will remember as NaviChat, the world’s first chat-based navigation bot.

That is probably not true, but anyway, my main mission was to play around a bit with the Google Directions API and the Google Places API and see what they can do in terms of navigating the public transport network.

Give it a try by going to m.me/NaviChat on your mobile with Facebook Messenger installed.

Both the Google Directions API and the Google Places API are part of the Google Maps Platform, which in turn is part of the Google Coud Platform.

The Jazzbot™ – a Chatfuel Chatbot

I just built a chatbot for Jazzity using Chatfuel. Super easy, great fun.

The Jazzity Jazzbot™ tells you what’s on tonight for a number of jazz clubs in Berlin. You can either type in the jazz club you’re interested in, or you can pick from a list that’s presented to you. You can ask for additional details and have the Jazzbot show you the directions on Maps.

What’s great about Chatfuel is that you can query JSON APIs and assign the query results to variables that you can later use as part of the chat or control flow.

To that end, I have built a quick Jazzity API which just returns today’s programm for a given club. I might write about how I did that in a different post at some point.

Anyways… now go ahead and check out the Jazzity Jazzbot™ at https://www.facebook.com/jazzityhq/
