I used Slack a while ago to communicate between different teams on a project but it caused more problems than it solved, so I stopped using it.

However, I’m in ten workspaces on Slack.

Slack channels

These are more discussion groups than collaborative working. Some are more active than others, ans I engage in them occasionally, but I don’t feel invested enough in any of them to get much value. I think for Slack to work you have to take part in the chats without feeling like you don’t have the right to comment because you aren’t as knowledgeable or opinionated as others.

So I thought I’d give it another go and see if I can get some value out of it by engaging more.
