Joseph Lichterman on Slack:
The Times of London built a bot that pulls in people’s schedules — so you can ask the bot if someone is busy before you bother them directly. Vox Media’s product team gets alerted through if there’s an issue with any of their sites — and they’ll also get an alert that notifies who was assigned to fix the problem. At BuzzFeed, one developer loves to eat at a certain Mexican food cart, so they built a Calexico Bot (named, appropriately, after the food cart) that asks if someone wants to go to the cart every time someone types his name.
Slack is such great tool. I absolutely love it, and the stuff listed above is so clever.
