Right at the end of the latest livestream about UT/VR/Blueprints I heard Dana mention an “update from our Slack channel…” and I assume she was talking about http://slack.com.
Interesting tool by a company called Tiny Speck. I have a lot of respect for them because of their prior project Glitch. They went from making a heavily social browser-based MMO to a productivity tool for business. A strange transition, but ultimately both were about getting people to interact so there is some crossover.
I’m curious if anyone from Epic (or anyone else for that matter!) can comment on if/how they use Slack. I used it for a bit with our development team but ultimately stopped because it created Yet Another Communication Channel. If you use it to completely replace internal email and messaging I think it could be awesome, but I imagine most companies aren’t agile enough to make that jump.
