about this episode

Gchat, IRC, even AIM, does anyone at your company use just one platform for instant messaging? Like email, it’s first-wave technology that has the same old problems. Pete Curley and friends from college got so fed up trying to pull devs, designers and sales teams into one place, they made a product that’s easy to use for everything from project collaboration to lunch orders. Sound boring? Wait until you try it. This is the kind of product that has instant evangelists, and coexists right alongside Yammer and other enterprise-focused networks. It’s taken off like wildfire at Netflix, Expedia, and here at LAUNCH HQ.
