We use channels just the same way we use them at work. “fixahuset” is a channel for stuff that needs to be fixed around the house, “general” is important stuff, “handla” is for picking up milk on the way home, “mathem” is an integration i’ll get to in a bit, and “random” is the usual cat gif mayhem we’ve all learned to love/hate. “pedertest” is where i test new integrations.
Jac and I tried Slack as a couple for a week or two. It didn’t stick. If we had kids, I could see it sticking like glue.
I know another couple that use Basecamp for the same purposes. They swear by it.
