I just want to chime in and say that I’ve been using this Slack app that Tom speaks of since he last mentioned it. It’s pretty terrific and easy to use. All it lacks are some more users.
It’s not a replacement for OBOL but a nice addition. I like it for side conversations, discussions and observations that may not meet my threshold for something I need to drop into 1400 people’s email boxes.
Hope to see more of you there!
