What's different about Slack is that team conversations are organized into channels. You can create channels for departments, projects, groups, office locations, literally anything. Channels can be public or private.

Slack is a new kind of messaging for teams, and it integrates with many apps you already use. It is a full messaging service, and also allows you to share documents, PDFs, images, spreadsheets, add comments, making collaboration more contextual and efficient. Slack also includes notifications, and everything posted on Slack is searchable (such as messages, emails, notifications, files, even the content within your files).

Stack works with many of the tools you already use, such as Twitter, GitHub, Amazon, DropBox, MailChimp, WordPress and many more. It also works on multiple devices, so anything you do on once device will be synced on your other devices. Everything is in sync.

Our speaker is
Glen Fleishman, a Seattle based technology journalist who is also a two-time winner on Jeopardy! He has a degree in graphic design, and has published over 400 articles.
