Hello [newbie alert]
I ran across a really good article from +Silvano Luciani on SSML. You can play with this slick stuff in the simulator, works, etc.

On the side, I got the basic/test webhook up and running/returning via fulfillment. So, what I'm trying to figure out (probably obvious) is where does the SSML code go/get coded? Is this part of the JSON that's returned from the webhook I've framed up? The simple example I'd like to build is an intent saying show me some love and then run the example shown in the article. Once that thing works, I'm off to the races.

Sorry for the, likely, blindingly obvious miss on my part.

Thank you.

Rick
P.S. Is this a suitable/proper question for here or Stack?

Hello [newbie alert]

Here's an example use case to help frame my question. Note: All of this assumes I'm in Dialogflow only, with no outside code. The answers are canned simply to understand how to properly end the action.

I have three intents
Ask for the color of the box
Ask for the size of the box
Ask for the weight of the box.

So, the welcome is modified that says welcome as about color of size or weight.

I then have the three intents and they all work fine.

What I'm try to do is, after each answer, say what else can I help you with and then process the next question or process nothing, meaning the user actually says "nothing" or "good-by", etc.

I understand follow up intents and I almost get context. I've seen the switch on the intent to end the conversation.

I'm asking this as I've read a bunch of people failing acceptance within Google for the open mic thing.

Am I missing something crazy obvious?

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

Hello [newbie alert]

On the default welcome intent I want the text to read Welcome. It is presently $sys.time here. What can I help you with?

It doesn't appear I can use the system entity $sys.time to do this. Is that right? Seems like a lot of people would want this in some actions.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Another reminder that life is short. If you were at Microsoft during the "good ol days", you will remember Tom. Really sad. RIP.

I guess I'll follow others with the "I'm now here" stuff. Google still, to my knowledge, doesn't have the merge accounts thing going so please invite me over at rick@fixmo.com so I can consolidate plus accounts. Pain pain.. Sorry..

and that's a (flash) wrap. Do we give Adobe credit for seeing the future of does everybody yell at them for 'abandoning' the product.

The dog is back. Funny how you get Conan to own his own stuff and, presto, he knows to 'get the content out there' 9 funny dog minutes.

and in the "ouch" category:

"This product is the bastard love child of a drunk one-nighter between the MS greed machine and bad software architects. "

It is a line in the first comment after the full story.

As a former developer relations guy, this was seriously painful to read, especially this quote:

"RIM’s show for app developers for the BlackBerry and PlayBook couldn’t have been more different: noiseless and almost depressing, like a group of children who had been left at the mall by their parents, discussing how to get home."

When it's that biting, you start to root for the underdog.

Here's an interesting article about 'geeks' not having influence, FB dominating G+, and the Android stuff still being Geek Central. All done up by the premier source of all technology news: BeatWeek. No, really. +Kevin Michaluk will need to shut down his blog as apparently everybody reads it and buys an iPhone.
