Fucking chat without any email account

But now, Slack has given every employee a virtual office door, and boy do we use them: Since adopting Slack last year, staffers have exchanged 1.2 million messages, and just 4 percent of them have been aired in the public channels that every employee can see.Seventeen percent of our messages are shared in private groups, which require an invitation to join and are hidden even from administrators; 79 percent of our Slack chatter takes the form of one-on-one direct messages.

Vogt, 29, brought Slack to Gimlet soon after the company launched and is a true believer.

(Slack has also advertised on Vogt’s show.) But Vogt’s older boss, Gimlet CEO Alex Blumberg, is still struggling to catch on.

Slack’s mission is to “make your working life simpler, more pleasant and more productive.” It seems best-suited for the second goal on that list. The chat system makes it easy for users to create their own inside jokes.
