Slack: makes the day interrupt-driven, increases the bad kind of productivity, and (unfortunately) replaces documentation.

Between 2014 and 2016 my working life went through a lot of changes but the worst one was the normalization of slack. Managers like it because it ‘gets things down on paper’, ‘improves reachability’, ‘gets questions answered quickly’.

Slack and the toxic behaviors it implicitly endorses will give ADD to your whole company. Want a one-click competitive advantage? Delete your account.

"I think most people agree that when knowledge workers work together on teams they need to use writing to agree on what to do. On slack the quality of that writing is plumbing new depths. There’s a world of difference between a well-considered G doc that has been edited by multiple people vs a stream of consciousness mixed in with people’s WFH announcements and ‘look what my cat did’." via Instapaper https://abe-winter.github.io/plea's/help/2018/02/11/slack.html
