Dear chatbot lovers,
In 2008 I created a very silly page with a chatbot listing. It was the first version of Chatbots.org. Between 2009 and 2011 I literally spend all my time and ALL my money on this website. I’ve even lended a 100K euro from friends because I believed in chatbots.. Unfortunately, I was to early. I decided to keep the site alive and to spend money on hosting and necessary upgrades of the CMS. I would have loved to do more, but I simply couldn’t.
I had to reshift my focus and went to health (supplements and technology). And although I love to see people improving their health and vitality, I still have a great passion for chatbots.
Now, the time has changed. I was asked to speak at the virtual assistants conference in San Francisco but couldn’t afford the flight ticket, I’ve been approached by formerly sponsors of this website, so far for free. And today, I was approached by American Airlines to advertise in their worldwide magazine. Something is going on! We are going to the next phase with chatbots.
In the mean time, I still don’t have money (actually still the debt position) and I have to focus to survive on a daily basis. I DO have a good health. Just the missing financial position. Also, my key developer is no longer interested to work with me on the website.
What I definitely need is a smart technology partner who can design, program and maintain the website (build in ExpressionEngine/PHP). I’m an idea guy, I’m very creative and everything you see on this website comes from my mind. But I did’t design it in pixels. And it would be cool have some financial stability. I’d love to continue my work and makes this website GREAT AGAIN (remember that slogan ? :-p )
My question to you is: when you would stand in my shoes, what would YOU do? What would you do FIRST?
