    UI, UX, & Marketting have a lot to do with Slack's success i mean just look at it.. its just IRC + File Sharing.. none of the technology is new or revolutionary in any way.. its not even faster.. there is no metric on which slack is better than the completion in terms of technology. The only thing that works for slack is anyone who uses it instantly falls in love.. and thats what great designers do, they make people fall in love with their products.

      Nope, I never fell in love with it. I use it because that is what the teams I'm in uses those some have switched to Glip). It works, it does the job, although will get hammered by Glip if the Slack team keeps up the hubris.

      If Slack get on the defensive over Matt's article, you can't trust their future.

      Many a company has been brought to its knees by its own hubris.
