Has anyone else used Slack? If you have, I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on it. This easy-to-use business-oriented chat system looks set to become huge over the next few years. I’m part of an organisation which is trying to collaboratively develop some proposals for my home town, and our Slack group is at the heart of everything we do. It’s way more efficient than email or any other way of communicating. As a result, we’re discussing, dismissing and developing ideas at an astonishing rate. Group members can decide which parts of the project they’re interested in, and read and respond from their desktop or smartphone whenever is convenient.
Here’s a long article which should give you an idea of what Slack is all about. I’m seriously impressed.
