Slack was down for a few hours today. It has now returned online. The original story appears below.
Slack is down so I had no choice but to look up from my monitor and wonder… wait a sec… who are these people sitting all around me?? My COLLEAGUES? We are all corralled in a physical space to talk to each other in the face, and not just with dancing emoji? Neat!
slack is so integral to my work life that when it’s down i’m honestly surprised that anything else still works. like wow, twitter is fine? my phone still texts? the english language still makes sense? my eyes still work?
