I fondly remember a time when being on the company #irc channel meant you were available and logging off meant you were not. Also nobody was expected to read every line posted in there to keep track of what's going on. I wonder if companies adopting #slack are aware of the different workflow they are adopting by using tools which can ping you everywhere at anytime. (Yes, I am aware that you can turn those off.)
@stchris some companies would make us workaholic on purpose? No, can't be!!!
