We Are The Robots

  1. Single person helping many people through a platform that scales.

    Sustainable social entrepreneurship to pay bills and live a happy family life. People pay a community gardener and curator to get quality over quantity.

    read the handbook before submitting their CV
  3. Automate only stuff which you actually already do manually and

    you know it has value for your members.
  4. Custom automation allows made-to-measure solutions to use cases which you

    already have in the community, unlike off-the-shelf solutions of imaginary problems.
  5. Custom robot can motivate members in doing what you want.

    You cannot change Discord or Slack, but you can add UX.
  6. Greeting new members takes a lot of time, but the
