Gotta say, I love the tool. Personally, I think it’s a bit overvalued, but big congrats to the team. Direct listing is interesting too. I wonder if we’ll see this more often.

    I like slack a lot, but they will face a lot of competition from currently inferior products like Hangouts Chat and Microsoft Teams that will get bundled into enterprise suites for free.

    I don't see much differentiation for them long term.

      you don’t understand how critical Slack is because you don’t use it or use it properly at google.

      I used it at a previous company. I like the product a lot, but bean counters will look at Microsoft Teams and ask "why are we paying for both slack and office"

      "You don't use it properly" is a pretty shit excuse. The success of slack is dependent on people seeing it as more than a chat app. If people don't the onus is on you to show them why it's not.

    It’s just a messaging app. Seriously overvalued. I personally don’t like it...

    True. But bean counters are slowly dying away and gen x, millennials or tech savvy baby boomers understand the concept of technical debt and best of breed software. There’s a high cost to free.
