It used to be that the mark of a “fun” office was a foosball table crammed into the break room.But Slack makes the workspace itself feel like a game.But curiosity got the better of me, and I contacted Amazon to ask what it was about.They told me that “I” had a conversation with Amazon support? It was a text-chat, and they emailed me a transcript:.
Trying very hard to not take out my frustrations on an unrelated support rep, I contacted both Amazon Retail and AWS expressing my disappointment and asking them to put a note on my account that it is at extremely high risk of being social engineering, and I will always be capable of logging in.Last year blogger Beejoli Shah started to notice a curious new artifact populating her social media feeds: screenshots of office chats, mostly taking place in an upstart workplace communication tool called Slack.At first Shah failed to see the appeal of sharing a few lines of water cooler conversation among co-workers that, more times than not, appeared basically unintelligible to outsiders. honestly i dont care if he responds or not but what intrigues me if WHY people even initiate and WASTE THEIR PRECIOUS TIME writing stuff like this only to not follow through? " and then the original convo-starter doesn't respond for months! "and then 4 weeks later today, he still hasn't responded.
