Trys Mudford:

I’m sick of the always-on mentality it promotes.
I’m sick of the expectation that a), it’ll always be open, and b), you’ll respond immediately.

Slack or real time multi people chat in general is a tricky thing. As a remote worker I heavily rely on it and it is super helpful in the day to day business but at the same time I feel the same about most of the points Trys is making, too. As so often in life, it’s about finding the right tradeoffs and using the tool in moderation, I think. But I know for sure that’s easier said than done.
