I presented to the Portland Web Innovators user group tonight.  I talked about a Twitter bot that I created a while ago called @tweetybot.  It is a normal Twitter user that, believe or not, will make phone calls when it receives direct messages.  Ultimately, what I did was trivial; the magic and heavy lifting is being done by Twilio, a Web service that hides all the complicated telecom stuff behind a simple RESTful API.  You can read more about it on my previous blog post.

Here's the deck I presented just in case you missed the show:


I would like to especially thank Portland Web Innovators for giving me the opportunity to talk, Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE) for hosting the event, Twilio for providing a killer service and some really nice swag, and to all those that attended.
