We've live on WhatsApp!

One of my reasons for launching the Web Wednesday community back in 2006 was to have an untethered testing ground for emerging digital technologies. A space where we could try out the latest "shiny objects" at a live event with real people in unpredictable environments.

We started with audio podcasts on Odeo which the founders then closed and went on to launch Twitter!

We pointed our first generation smart phones at Geoffrey the Giraffe (guy in a rubber suit) hoping to download the latest Java game over Bluetooth. ToysRUs went out of business and, sadly, put Geoff down!

We've blogged on Blogger, tweeted on Twitter, signalled on Sina and grinned on 'Gram.

We've shaken our phones in unison to speed-connect over WeChat. We've scanned each other's profiles on LinkedIn.

Our interviews were now originally posted on Vimeo and YouTube and are now also on LinkedIn and IGTV. We've even live-streamed onto Facebook (with Mevo).

And today, we go live with our very own chatbot on WhatsApp! Come try us out.

You can either click on this link or scan the QR code below to connect with our official WhatsApp Business account. Once hooked up, our chatbot will guide you how to redeem and post offers on the 852 Reboot Hong Kong website. You can also watch all our latest interviews of local entrepreneurs (recorded on my smart phone, at different spots around town).
