An interesting week. I'm in 12 Slacks. I've enjoyed / suffered under Slack for years.
This week I'm evangelizing dragging people all over the world into a new Slack (this thread) because I honestly believe its better than not having one. Better than FaceBook (etc.) in many ways.
Simultaneously (1) I'm bemoaning this weeks Slack changes because I hate WYSIWYG editors (2) lots of open source Slacks I'm in are (semi-)abandoned (3) in large groups a few shit heads tend to emerge, loudly.
