August 26th is #noslackday

Mark August 26th on the calendar

Slack is so engrained in your workplace. You cannot email your coworkers anymore: they won’t read them. You cannot share long-form documents about product vision: all discussions happen in threads. You cannot expect a curated review for your Pull Request: just drop a link in a public channel and hope someone will notice.

Maybe there is a better way. Stop slacking for a single day. Just turn it off.

Rediscover the pleasure of spending two hours writing down your ideas without immediate replies. Get back into the zone by coding for an entire morning without a stream of pending notifications. Rejoice in the tranquillity of designing prototypes that will be reviewed where they live, not in a chat.
