Voice Phishing Scams Are Getting More Clever
"Most of us have been trained to be wary of clicking on links and attachments that arrive in emails unexpected, but it’s easy to forget scam artists are constantly dreaming up innovations that put a new shine on old-fashioned telephone-based phishing scams. Think you’re too smart to fall for one? Think again: Even technology experts are getting taken in by some of the more recent schemes (or very nearly)."

Products are Conversations
The right customers for you will understand your tradeoffs, validate and support your decisions, and align. They will value the experience you are creating for them, and progress in a longer term relationship, not a transaction.

Rather than see the Head of Product as the CEO of Product, the PM is put as close to the customer as possible to make decisions on their behalf, and plays the role of Information Hub to align stakeholders through effective conversations. Your stakeholders want to have these conversations, and it’s your job to make sure they happen."

Slack must use cash hoard to find new ways to keep competition at bay
"“For Slack to continue to be successful, they need to expand beyond what they are currently doing and really, truly redefine the way people communicate, collaborate, coordinate around their work. They need to branch out to project management, task management, content creation — all sorts of things more than just collaboration."

Slack won the first Group Messaging war
"It’s not clear yet what this and their last acquisition (Missions, a workflow app) means for the Slack developer ecosystem. Atlassian products were already favored in their app store promotion, and they will probably get some additional benefits in the partnership. Similar to the first move Slack made to compete against Microsoft in how it partnered with Google and made it easier to work with Google Office in Slack."

Slack forms key alliance as Atlassian throws in the towel on enterprise chat
"That the announcement came from Slack co-founder and CEO Stewart Butterfield on Twitter only exacerbated that fact. Atlassian has a set of popular developer tools like Jira, Confluence and Bitbucket. At this point, HipChat and Stride had really become superfluous to the company and they sold the IP to their competitor."

Rishi, Slack can be right for you. You just need the right tools and practices to focus your work. - by @ross
" Although Slack is positioned as a productivity tool, it becomes counterproductive when misused. Instant messaging applications enable communication that is online, synchronous and on-demand. This tends to be appropriate for interrupt-driven teams like those in customer service and sales. However, project-oriented teams tend to suffer from inundation. As a software developer in product development, I constantly seek and protect long-uninterrupted blocks of time. That is when I am able to create value of higher quality, faster."

IBM Watson to Bring ‘Cognitive Assistant’ Capabilities to Slack
"After the deal with Microsoft had fallen through, Slack CEO and co-founder, Stewart Butterfield contacted David Kenny, General Manager, IBM Watson. Kenny, who had been his position for just 10 days, jumped at the chance to partner with Butterfield. The resultant partnership, where Slack chatbots will be fueled by Watson’s machine learning for enterprise-level communication, was announced at the World of Watson in Las Vegas."

Sisense announces bots for Slack, Skype, Facebook Messenger and Telegram - by @ron_miller
"What bots do is provide a way to use natural language to interact with software, and when done well, they can surface the value often hidden inside a software package, directly to non-technical end users."

We had the opportunity to attend the satellite location of the Microsoft Teams l... - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, Microsoft is.. Microsoft. Users who for whatever reason want to escape the vendor’s products will always be at hand. A lot of the success of the chat collaboration solutions has been the desire to ‘do less email’ – but ultimately everything gets pulled back to email. Thorough, deep innovation in email (Outlook) is what is the long game, if not the war for productivity suites. AI, Robots, voice all play a role to get business users to new productivity levels. By taking the fight to point solutions, Microsoft may lose the eye on the real prize – collaborative productivity across all channels that the 21st century knowledge worker needs."

Microsoft Teams and Slack point to the future of collaboration - by @dt
"Slack’s success highlights a key problem for our existing collaboration software options. They are more difficult to use than they should be. On top of that, the digital workplace is a mess. Alongside whatever we use for team collaboration, we access a whole host of disparate corporate systems with differing interfaces to get the job done. Slack has the ease of use and frictionless set up of the consumer apps we all used to on our smartphones and tablets."

“Silicon Valley is hostile to diversity,” says Slack Director of Engineering Leslie Miley
"Miley said that while Slack isn’t perfect, it is “being intentional” and is trying to recruit engineers from schools that aren’t traditionally expected to produce top-notch talent.

Still, when an audience member asked what advice Miley would give to black entrepreneurs in the Bay Area, he was blunt: “Leave.”

“Seriously, Silicon Valley is hostile to diversity,” he continued. “Jesse Jackson came to Silicon Valley in 1998. Here were are in 2016 still talking about it.”

Hey Startups: Turning Off Slack Won’t Solve Your Management Problems
"Finally, this is not to say that we can’t have innovation in management. I’m dubious about Holacracy and getting rid of middle-management, but if you read about companies that think they have successfully gotten rid of middle-managers, they are still doing management."

Slack and the New Model for Business Process Software - by @mgboydcom
Beginning life as an internal messaging app for an internal development project, Slack has quickly become one the most prominent messaging apps used today. The momentum is moving beyond Slack itself, as a plethora of third-party companies are building out new functionality based on Slack, in effect turning the work chat app into a platform for running business processes. Startups with a focus on providing developer tools, in particular, are seeing that in order to gain market traction, they need to integrate or otherwise leverage Slack.

So Long Blogging. Hello—Yep, We’re Going to Say It—Plogging
"Last week, Facebook updated its little-known Notes feature to encourage users to write “more beautiful and customizable” posts separate from status updates. Medium announced a $57 million round of funding (on Medium, of course) and is holding a VIP event next week to reveal new features. Everyone’s favorite unicorn Slack relaunched its Posts feature to help users write longer at work. And Re/code reports that Twitter is building a product to allow users to share posts longer than the typical 140-character limit."
