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 The plugins and so on (but not the config.yaml, since it contains passwords) are checked into git and available at 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.
