Noisebot is our irc bot. It occasionally does useful and/or annoying things.
It hangs out in #noisebridge and #nycresistor. You can ask it to tell people things across the two channels.
We're currently in an uptime contest with #nycresistor's bot.

ponybot is a rbot running as ponybot on pony.noisebridge.net. The plugins and so on (but not the config.yaml, since it contains passwords) are checked into git and available at https://github.com/radii/noisebot/ for your hacking pleasure. Please send pull requests! In fact, please make a module so that ponybot can update itself based on IRC requests from registered users.
