George the Dev originally began as a small experiment named "FlackBot". Due to increased difficulty maintaining the experiment and a few "incidents" in the chat rooms, FlackBot was abandoned for a couple of years. I recently rewrote the "brains" of the bot and gave it a new name. It is now back up and running.
George the Dev is a chat bot for the Stack Exchange network of chat sites.
