Bot – lots of Bots


We tend to think of computer software and applications like little miniature robots.   They follow commands, and they do things for us (because we can’t, or don’t want to).  As we embark on this new business venture we are working to create a business identity, and we’ve decided to incorporate robots (bots).  We’re not going to go Jetson’s over-kill, or start sharing Star Wars R2D2 memes, but for each different project, we plan to create a corresponding bot that may (or may not) be hidden within the final project.

In this, our inaugural project we are working with Aurora Downtown to create a mobile information and way-finding application for their First Fridays events.  For that project, we present, Alpha Bot.

We haven’t decided if there will be a Beta Bot, and so on, or if we’ll get more creative with our bot monikers.   Time will tell.

Pardon our dust

green_ozeWe sit here at the inception of Oddlots! *laughs* This isn’t some grand “Let there be Light” moment. It more resembles something dragging it’s way out of the chaotic primordial ooze.

We are a collective of makers that need a place to do that making. We do software, primarily web stuff. I grabbed in order to give us a space to start playing around. Shortly, I will be incorporating Oddlots so that we have a structure that people can feel comfortable with both internally and externally.

This space will be a dumping ground for ideas and experiences. It’s not likely to be filtered for political correctness so read it knowing that we’re good people trying to do good things. Like most nerds, our social filters aren’t tuned to level usually seen these days.

In the end, I hope this becomes a chronicle of starting up something awesome.
