Slack is the opposite of organizational memory
Feb 11, 2018

Interruptions
The format is fragmented and constrained
slack search is broken
It increases productivity (the bad kind)
It replaces documentation
What does slack do right
trello & jira

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’. My argument is that it destroys teams’ ability to think, plan & get complex work out the door. Read on for the full story.

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

"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

Favorite tweet:

The rise of chat-first modes of collaboration is probably the largest setback to healthy work habits and boundaries since the open office became fashionable. https://t.co/dTZuFiXB8b pic.twitter.com/pabw7pirpW
