Four Ton Fish
My name is Stefan [stefn], and I'm a "full stack" web developer living in Brooklyn, New York. This site hosts my personal projects, blog, and tutorials. Some of my work is open sourced on GitHub. Sometimes I draw and take pictures.
PS: This site runs on Pico.
[...] here’s one of those tweaks, and it’s cool.
It’s called Simple Sharing Buttons Generator and it’s by Stefan Bohacek. Bohacek is Brooklyn famous for being the inventor of BotWiki, a digital encyclopedia of bots that can be found and used online.
Botwiki came about because Bohacek wanted to be able to run fast searches whenever he had an idea for a bot. As he explains, similar websites that already existed “were either a bit incomplete, hard to browse, or plainly just didn’t work most of the time.”

Stefan Bohacek decided he would catalog every bot on the web.
It’s no small task and he’s far from done. At his site, botwiki.org, you can search bots by category, by platform, or if you’re a dev and you want to learn how to make a bot, you can search by language or the text or data you want to use.

Developed by BotWiki, The Monthly Bot Challenge started as a community event with a simple concept: on the first day of each month, a new challenge topic – and prize – is announced online.

Botmakers.org provides a list of tools and resources for developers to create ethical bots, and the organization has a Code of Conduct that applies to all bots its more than 700 members create. Stefan Bohacek, Botmakers's organizer, said reaching outside of your usual social and professional circles to other groups can give you a different perspective and help you realize features your bot might need for harassment prevention.
“As a self-taught web developer,” Stefan writes, “I really appreciate all the educational content freely available on the web. Many people devote their free time to create resources for anyone willing to learn, and I thought making this kit might be a way to contribute.”
