    Agree, lacks a bit of warmth/personality. It feels over-minimalised.

    Woah, 1999 stuff. They prob have their priorities figured out though. Better design is likely to have very little impact on their revenue.

    Very interesting, thanks for sharing! You think the validation of the 'hype' has contributed to successful adoption too? Did you share any of that to push it?

    Thanks again for sharing your experiences. Super insightful! :)

    Some really great points in there about how to 'sell' it internally.

    Do you have any learnings on how to get the more traditional and less tech-savvy people on? Like some older more traditional managers or other more digital illiterate coworkers if any?

    Curious to hear about how they initially reacted on Slack, what was their experience like?

    If you don't mind me asking: what type of agency do you work at? Also: who we're the first to pick up Slack in your organisation?

    What kind of products are you working on? Would you say that most of you are relatively tech savvy?

    If you don't mind me asking: what other teams in your organisation have failed to pick it up?

    I think it also depends a lot on what type of agency you are. Digital agencies will adopt Slack much easier as people are quite tech-savvy.

    In the below comments the companies that have successfully adopted Slack are very likely digital/mobile/web focused.

    Problem for all other agencies is that Slack was built and designed for software devs. It's got lots of '/' & '#' and geeky bells-and-whistles that for non-techies are completely irrelevant. As a result the experience is extremely overwhelming for a lot of people (while tech people see the UX as simple and intuitive as it resembles IRC, both copy and design).

    So much polish and craft, wow. Creator is not related to any NGO as far as I could find? Impressive!
