I remember the day a couple years back when I was working at home and had no power but still had internet. It was a trade I was very willing to make – I am very aware of how reliant I am on my internet connectivity.

This morning, Slack’s connectivity has been spotty. I think my company is crippled, but I’m not really sure because … well, how would I know? I do know I had 5 things on my to-do list and I couldn’t do any of them. I couldn’t access the documents I needed. I couldn’t post the things I needed to share. I couldn’t communicate. I resorted to text messages and laughed when I saw how long it had been since I had texted with some of my colleagues who I communicate with throughout the day every day (looking at you, Dan). So, here I am writing a blog about it because LinkedIn is available and I’m taking a break from my frustration.

In early 2017, I was in a CEO forum and several of the CEO’s had never even heard of Slack. How fast the world changes. Oh, and if you haven’t heard of it, check it out. We love it!
