Building your own Sametime bots, Part 1

Building your own Sametime bots, Part 1
One of the more exciting new technologies coming out of IBM/Lotus these days is Sametime bots. These are programs that take advantage of Sametime's awareness and real-time collaboration features to provide an interactive, text-based interface to a back-end data source such as a database or Web page. Bots perform specific tasks such as locating information you request, reminding you when an event is approaching, and finding mutually available meeting times in users' calendars. You can design bots that you chat with online and ask questions as though they were real live people!
