"slack" Discussed on Gadget Lab Podcast

"A little afraid but I'm looking forward to it because your recommendations are usually off the wall. What's your recommendation this week? It's not off the wall. So first of all, I already threw out the walk and talk as a freebie, so we won't even count that as a recommendation, but that's just a little bonus one. My recommendation this week as many of my past recommendations have been is cooking related. So for a long time, I wanted to get a saucier, which is a kind of pan, it's kind of like a cross between a saucepan and a saute pan, where it has high walls, but it's sloped so that it's not like the right angles that you get with like a soup pot. And these are useful as the name suggests for making sauce because they have a bigger surface area than a high wall than a straight walled saucepan, but you can also use them more like more like you would use a frying pan as well. So they're very versatile. But when I was looking for them, they were really expensive. And then I realized that the same exact pan is sold at much cheaper prices under the title chef's pan. So I bought a cuisinart one for like 30 bucks. And it's fantastic. So I recommend if you like cooking at home, especially if you like making, well, sauces, soups, things that combine liquid and saw ingredients. Definitely go get yourself a chef's pan. What's the finish on the pan? Oh, right, great question. This is nonstick. Nonstick, okay. And what is your favorite thing that you've cooked with it so far? One thing that it's really good for is there's a way of cooking pasta where you cook it in you cover the pasta in just enough water to cook it. But no more. And so as it cooks down, the water thickens with the starch from the pasta and becomes the base for your sauce. So basically, what you can this is a great application of the chef's pan or the saucier. So cook your whatever that you're gonna have with the pasta vegetables, sausage, whatever sauce, cook that in the pan, pour it into a bowl set it aside. Then pour your in your pasta, just cover it with boiling water, cook it down for ten minutes or whatever. And at the end, you have just this hyper starchy, small amount of liquid, and then when you pour your vegetables or meat or whatever back in and mix it all around and dump in some Parmesan, you get this really nice textured sauce. I'm getting super hungry listening to you describe this. Well, luckily it's about to be lunchtime. Thank you for that recommendation. That's great. Yeah, my pleasure. What's your recommendation this week? Oh, I have to bring us back to slack. I'm sorry. All right, right, right, right. I actually have a reminder about this one. Okay, so I just discovered this the other day while going deeper into slack's features. You must. You must you must use the calendar chatbot and slack. So I'm using gcal, and I've connected my gcal with slack. This requires permissions like every other darn app. We need your social security number and naming rights to your first born child. And it's not quite that level, but there are. But it gets permission to read and edit everything in your calendar. Exactly, exactly. So now congratulations slack, you can edit my dentist appointments. But then, this slack bot when wait Lauren calendars are actually extremely revealing. Oh, no, no, they are. They are. I'm just saying, it's like not just your dentist's appointment. You know, they're gonna be some sensitive stuff in there about where you go, who you're meeting with when you're doing it, so. Sorry, sorry, this is just pride me on my privacy soapbox. I'm so sorry. Carry on. Now I have regrets about recommending you're making me question everything in my life. Well, it's not like I have a track record of signing up for every single app and leaving digital footprints everywhere I go. I only wrote a story about it. Okay, all right, so let's just say you're willing to throw a privacy out the window. Thank you a lot for ringing the alarm bells on that. You should check out the calendar chat bot in slack because every morning when you sign on to slack, it's going to rattle off your calendar appointments for you in like a separate little slack chat or DM. It's going to remind you a few minutes before those calendar appointments pop up again. And then this is the best part, I think. It also automatically puts up that little calendar logo next to your name when you're in a meeting. And I really like this. I'm looking at my slack right now, and it says in a meeting with a calendar logo. I didn't put that up there. That was done by the slack bot because this black box saw on my calendar that we were taping this podcast during that time. So it goes back a little bit to my pet peeve about a lack of really useful way messages or a way messages that people actually pay attention to. But this will at least put up some sign of the fact that you are in a meeting and it does it for you as you pop into the meeting. So yeah. Also, my second recommendation would be just leave slack channels that you're not participating in. Just leave them. Say goodbye, don't think twice about it. Leave anything that's not sparking joy. I can also, as an intermediary step from that, if there's channels that you only occasionally want to look at for some reason, you can completely silence them. So that they're always faded and you may only get a notification to somebody mentions you. But I found that as a good way to kind of declutter without completely leaving channels that I ever 5 months might jump into for some reason. It's a good idea. Thank you. Well, hopefully this podcast has sparked joy and not trepidation about our video conferencing future. Go out. Thank you so much for co hosting this episode with me. Anytime. And thanks for that great pasta recommendation too. I'm more excited about the pasta than the chef's pan. I'm not gonna lie. Well, why not both? Why not both? Thanks to all of you for listening for spending the precious time that you could have been on yet another video conference and instead listening to our show. If you have feedback, you can find all of us on Twitter, just check the show notes. Glaad we'll be back to co host with me again next week, and I'm very excited about that. Our producer.

"slack" Discussed on Gadget Lab Podcast

"On this button while you're starting this quick super efficient audio chat, why don't you check out all this other stuff that we have. And I spoke to an analyst about this, someone who covers enterprise software and employee communication software. And what it really feels like is slack is kind of towing the line between being what slack is and what slack is really good at, which is just like rapid real-time chats. And being like a full fledged video conferencing system. There's sort of tiptoeing in that direction. They're saying, hey, we now have a coworking suite. We now have a coworking software feature that we're offering you. But they're not quite going full fledged into Zoom WebEx, Microsoft Teams, because once you get into that market, you're competing with some really, really big giants. And not only are you competing with really big giants, but you kind of have to maintain that software and start to offer all of the other tools and services that your big enterprise clients are going to want. And that's just like a lot of work. Now, we should mention that slack is now a part of Salesforce. Salesforce of the Salesforce tower in San Francisco. It was a huge deal last year. It was a $28 billion acquisition when Salesforce bought slack. Salesforce is known for their sales management software that they sell to enterprises all over the world. And so it's possible at some point that's lack does move more and more towards becoming that sweet that big bloated enterprise software suite that's being offered to businesses all around the world. But for now, it's just kind of like inching towards offering more of those services by turning this really kind of fun lightweight, hey, let's just have a quick chat in our slack app into something that's like honestly just very jargony. Well, from the beginning, slack had pretty grand ambitions to be more than just a chat platform. I went back and reread 2014 profile of slack's founder that wired published written by Matt honan. And he talks about wanting slack to become the new Microsoft. And be a place where it's not just messaging, but where people are going to be collaborating on documents together. And doing all the stuff that employees rely on various different software applications to do. So in that sense, this feels like a step in that direction where you just bringing more and more functions within slack. And it's also, I think they're competing with Microsoft Teams. A lot of workplaces use teams and teams is out in front with the video integration. So it seems like a natural step in that competition as well. It's funny. I feel like I never use teams unless I'm taking a meeting with Microsoft. Do you use teams a lot? No. I'm trying to think of if I ever have. I think, yeah, maybe my last workplace may be used teams because we were on outlook and but pretty quickly switched to zoom. Sorry, teams. No, you suck. No, it's kind of funny because same with, I want to say same with Google Meet, whatever I don't know what Google calls its things these days. I think it still meet, but people use that a little bit more frequently than they do teams, but mostly it's like, I have a meeting with Google. I'm going to be using me. I have a meeting with Microsoft. I'm going to be using teams. I once took a teams meeting a series of teams meetings just to figure out how to get a VR headset set up so I could run some instance of software that Microsoft wanted me to try and boy, was it a disaster. If there was ever any, I wrote a story about it, and I said to Michael, our pal and my editor, and I was like, I can't write this story and not mention how ridiculous this process was, because if this is supposed to be the future of work, I don't want this future. It was so hard to just join a meeting and not because of just teams because of the process of getting into VR. And I was like, I really would just want a phone call right now. I just want a phone call, which is what huddles offers in slack. But now we're gonna see if it ends up being a little bit bloated. Time will tell as we like to say. That's right. All right, thank you for your insights. We're going to take a quick break and then we're going to come back and we're going to slack off some more and maybe just maybe. I'm going to give a lot a little space to rant. This episode is brought to you by AT&T. AT&T is open and connected learning centers across the country.

Elon Musk Just Had an Epic Meeting With Twitter Employees

"Right, let's turn to some fun stuff. Twitter, Twitter, Elon Musk, just drive and everybody over Twitter absolutely crazy. He had a meeting with employees today that he did over cell phone and he spoke to them as he promised he would and let's just say they're not too psyched. They're not rolling out the red carpet for Elon anytime soon. And he said some stuff that caused them to get very, very worried. In fact, one of the things he said is he would err on the side of allowing outrageous tweets. He's okay with outrageous tweets. This is a company that has worked very, very hard to sort of control what's out there if you would. And there are certain biases, shall we just say that I think have been reflected in how they manage that quote unquote control. So now you get this guy coming out of outer space, shall we say he did say it had never seen an alien, by the way. But anyway, he's coming in from we're going to say outer space, Texas, right? I think for a lot of Twitter employees, Texas might as well be outer space. And he suggesting things that would effectively turn the company on its head from everything that they've known, but I do believe one would be better for society and two will ultimately be better for the company as well. Because he wants to grow to a billion users. They've got roughly 229 million. I believe for their last filing, that's if they're all legit users, right? Because don't forget, that's another wrinkle in all of this. As Elon Musk threatens to get out of the deal as Elon Musk threatens to renegotiate the deal, I'll get to that in a second, but first back to this meeting, one of the issues that came up was whether or not employees would be able to work from home. Don't forget what he said to Tesla employees, like no way no how? And if you have a problem with that, come see me directly. Well, he told the Twitter employees that it would be considered for really exceptional employees. So apparently they were all conversing with each other on slack as this whole thing was going on and they were like, oh, you know, what is an exceptional employee and apparently sending memes and there was a lot of sort of hazing and teasing about the presentation. But look, he's talking about rocking their world. And that's never fun. Right? It's not fun for them, it's not fun for the establishment, but I think ultimately it could be incredibly healthy for our

The Activist Media Stole the 2020 Election. Here's Proof

"Break, I kind of went through piece by piece. Hill dot com, 50 former intelligence officials warned New York Post story sounds like Russian disinformation. So basically they captured the top of the funnel, they got 50 former Intel officials. Now, what does that even mean? That means that they just found 50 Democrats that used to work in the CIA for Obama that now work at Google and Facebook and Oracle, and they have them probably on a slack channel, or they call up, hey, Sally Sue, needs you to sign a document. Does this look like Russian disinformation? Of course it does. Of course it does. Of course it does. Of course it does, even though it isn't, it wasn't. And then Politico writes this up. And I'll be very honest. I don't even think the people at Politico, the editor in chiefs, had any idea the kind of surgical strike of election interference that this story was going to broker. This story gave Joe Biden the presidency. That's not a journalist operation. That's a political action committee. When I get to some sound here, remember this, so then CNN takes the Politico story and then they repeat it, operation mockingbird style, and they say there's no evidence. There's no evidence, it's disinformation. So it creates this entire echo chamber around a central lie that was concocted around something that actually didn't say. And I want to read this again. The letter says, quote, this has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation. That doesn't mean it is, and it wasn't. And yet they reported it as if it was not that they suspected it. Not that it had the classic earmarks. What does that even mean? No, no, no. This was word manipulation to try to torpedo the ascending Donald Trump campaign that was about to win the election despite all the ballots in every direction, all this stuff. They needed to make sure that Donald Trump did not have a late break. How did they do that? Can't talk about it on Facebook. You can't talk about it on Twitter. You can't talk about it on social media. So they controlled the top of the funnel. They polluted the top of the tributary. They built a dam so that the news could not seep down to the independent voter. In Georgia, 17% of whom, by the way, said they would have voted for Trump if they would have known a little bit about this.

Garbage Cans (MM #3950)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. Yesterday when I was talking about neighbors, I mentioned garbage cans, leaving them out too long. We've had a situation recently. Our garbage collection is normally on Monday. But when we got our snow a week ago Thursday Friday that delayed garbage collection. So the garbage people told us, just put the can out on your normal day and we'll get there. Hopefully in a day or two, because they don't have their system together. Our system isn't built to be able to pick up the slack when garbage is missed more than one day. But that's not the worst part about the garbage collection. When you live in a nice little part of town where you've got a lot of tulane roads and you use them to cut through and not have to go to the highways, you see people who leave their garbage cans next to the curb, which is really more like in the street. Sure, I hate when people don't pick up the garbage cans on time. We basically give it maybe an hour from the time they come to pick up to when we get it put back to where it belongs. Some people can be a day or two, and days when you're waiting for the garbage man to come collect, let's even worse. It's dangerous around national right now because garbage is so late and people just put out their cans and keep waiting.

Father Frank Pavone Gets a Lot of Flack

"And we're back one on one with father Frank pavone. I have to ask this question, maybe you don't answer it, for some reason as a cradle Catholic, I get to hang out with some not rebellious but some tough tough tough priest in my time when I arrived to America our parish priest was Antonin Scalia's son. Serious serious fire and brickstone priest and it was fabulous to arrive to his parish. Yes. Have you, is it hard for you to do what you do? What is the church think of what you do? What kind of slack that you get? Okay. This is a big story here. This is a big story. Yeah, you know, first of all, of course, I wouldn't be doing this had I not gotten really some really strong support. Cardinal O'Connor was the one that launched me into that. But even he got flack as a cardinal, the archbishop of New York that arguably the most influential party in the country at that time and he told me and he said it publicly. He said, look, I get pushed back from some of my brother bishops, who say I'm too focused on this issue. And I've had bishops say to me all father Frank, you know, you're too aggressive about abortion. And I said, well, when abortion stops being aggressive against these little babies, then you come and talk to me. But, you know, I start with in my ministry was saying, look, we're a ministry of encouragement. We don't say we're a priest for life because the other priests aren't for life. We say, no, all the priests are for life. So there are exceptions, sadly. But they need help to say so. They need the tools to minister in their churches on this issue. So we help them in a very positive spirit. Despite the fact that we're so positive in our encouragement of our brother clergy, we get priests and bishops that literally want to stop what I'm doing. Now, I have had to go to the Vatican numerous times to defend this work and to defend my sincerely felt calling to do it on a full time

Instagram Chief Faces Backlash After Comparison Between Cars and Social Media Safety

"Head of instagram adam. Sorry is backlash for comments. He made on the recode media. Podcast and excellent podcast with your kafka. I've been on it once or twice. You basically compares social media and the dangers of it to the car industry. Let's listen to a seventy second clip. And i'll give you my back after as head of instagram. Do you feel like the product should not be available to certain kinds of people. I mean if this is something gen- genuinely could make and you don't know yet right. You're saying we don't we don't. We're not fully confident in the research but if there's a chance that this is a product that could really harm people in the same way that cigarettes harm people that you guys should be restricting it or maybe taking it off the market absolutely not. I really don't agree with the comparison. Drugs are cigarettes which have very limited any upsides. I think that anything that is going to be used at scale is going to have or negative outcomes. Cars have positive and negative outcomes. We understand that we know that more people die than would otherwise because of car accidents but by and large cards create way more value in the world than destroy and i think social media similar. I think that we do a ton to help. People connect with those that they love. We've helped advance a number of important social causes particularly me. Metoo and black lives matter. We help small businesses. Make a living. We help creators ways to express themselves as a bunch of we give voice to those have been historically marginalized. there's a ton of value that we create and but yes of course there are also issues as well

For companies one of the biggest lessons is how much more productive many employees can be when they work remotely. . In fact, , a recent study published in the Harvard Business Review, , found that knowledge workers are more productive and generally feel better about their work when doing it from home, , it's the attention of these workers that Google is trying to get by rebranding it suite of productivity and remote collaboration tools. . Google workspace formerly called G. SUITE INCORPORATES G, , mail calendar, , drive Docs, , and other Google apps into a single interface. .

So it makes sense for Google to coordinate all of these tools in one space to compete with productivity platforms like slack and Microsoft, , teams but there's nothing truly earth shattering about the new offering and unfortunately everyone including Google keeps messing up the new name Fast Company reported that in two separate workspace related blog posts published earlier this month Google called its own new brand work place. . Meanwhile Google is playing catch up with slack, , which has more than twelve million active daily users and enterprise customers include the majority of fortune one hundred companies including starbucks, , Oracle and target at the company's annual conference slack announced it was adding more security features like the ability to send secure slack messages to people outside your company. . The verge reports that slack will also introduce instagram likes stories and push to talk audio by the end of the year. . The goal is to cut down on constant video calls and inefficient text conversations by giving users communication tools they already use a quick story post can update the team and replace that annoying fifteen minute morning huddle. . Plus slack already has so many integrations that make it more than a messaging platform including integration with Google workspace. .

"It that's cloud it C. L. O. U. D. it all one word at checkout sperry software work in email not on email. That was that and this was my other soapbox item. Was I pull slack into this too because you keep hearing so you keep hearing to? That team's wants to slack right. They keep this is the new slack. This is better than slack or growth rate is better than slack. So let's throw that out there. That is one hundred percent like pure marketing. It is that is all that is so if you look at slack from a functionality. Perspective versus teams becomes a nice place to put the comparison box up and say well we do this and they don't do that but they're fundamentally different things and they're on totally different scales right. You've got four to five x number of like daily. Active users in teams teams is built on this whole other platform with. Azur SHARE POYNTON EXCHANGE. And all this stuff like I hate the teams or a slack comparison because they are like very muchly teams zoom or not same teams and slack are not the same like the things that I do in slack and the slack communities that I'm a part of we get so much more done in slack and I fundamentally believe we could not transitions some of those conversations and processes and just the way those conversations naturally occur over to something like teams without having be just like an absolute poop show whether the whether that's driven from like the U. I like. Don't get me started on. How have you ever met a person? Let's talk about you. I in teams. Have you ever met somebody who's actually figured out the way to do a reply the right way and a thread like I've been using teams for years and I still need to think about where I'm clicking but if you're on the mobile client you know it's all good and it just works? It's like I can walk in my wife's a teacher and so she's at home now as they do remote learning and the school system she works for. They're using teams for all their remote learning for their kids right. And that's that's really cool to see all that stuff used I can go in and like look over her shoulder on the kitchen and the threads are horrible right. I mean I work with business of like twenty people you know is the core company I work for and I dread going into team sometimes just because I cringe every time I see somebody can't reply to something the right way and that's just one thing that like teams does horribly. That slack does perfectly right because it's just a big stream chats and everybody can figure it out like I never felt lost in slack before they added threatening. Yeah no I absolutely agree and I do the same thing like the threads in to be fair. I do run across the same problem in slack. Is that sometimes? I forget to start a thread and I just keep replying instead of starting threads but for whatever reason teams is significantly harder. I do the same thing where I go in and I reply them like all. That should have been a reply under that message. Not Reply with a new a new chat instead of a reply. I don't even know how to describe the difference between the two. But that's been that other comparison is I keep seeing teams versus zooming teams versus black. And they can like you said they fall into the same boat for me. It's not comparing apples and apples. Comparing either one of those. They are one hundred percent different tools for different jobs. I could. I could see some organizations out there hopping into lake office three sixty five m three sixty five and never having the US teams for chat so the security thing out the window and go back to like ease of use and getting in there they might just use like office three sixty groups and planner and then they're all set and they they're still chatting over in slack or whatever they used to use before they came to teams because they don't WanNa drag a user community with them you know kicking and screaming and bleeding from banging their head against the wall so hard for trying to figure out like how we got there and then got like slack adding functionality join a Microsoft teams call and things like that. It's all over the place now right and I totally get that. So because I'm a Mac I had to suffer with skype for business. Whatever their client was was still two thousand eleven. The whole scape for business thing has always been weird. Unimak until teams came to fruition. So I would say up until probably six or eight months ago. I was in that boat of office. Three sixty five for everything unless I have to have a meeting with you. In which case we're GONNA use zoom because it works and it's easy and we're not gonNA spend the first fifteen minutes of our meeting banging your head against the wall trying to figure out. Why can't hear each other trying to figure out how to share screens? It was very much the use case because I'm a solo independent contractor. Everybody that was coming to. The meeting was external. Nobody was in my teams client or I was using skype. Which was horrendous on the Mac and zoom worked in. I needed something for meetings that worked so I was in that boat of amusing office. Three sixty five skype have teams the great but work. So I'm GONNA use them and same thing with slack. I am in slack in teams daily. I'm probably a part fifteen different. Slat groups I've guest in ten or twelve different teams tenants. I use them all. And it's based on the client's needs and where they are and based on the type of people that are in the group and like you said the interaction are we collaborating around projects and are we using planner and share point and all of those and the chat and teams is candidate benefits core driver great. We use teams it works. There are definitely things that are fundamentally more confusing. That are a little bit more of a challenge but at the end of the day when you look at all the requirements teams fits it best other ones. All we really need to do is chat. We don't care so much about files. Were not having regular meetings. It's a big group. I mean one of the slack groups I'm in is I forgot how people are in it. Twenty thousand twenty thousand people in a slight group that we never meet. Everybody just needs a place to chat charity as talk in for that slack is great. I cannot imagine having a team with twenty thousand people all from different organizations her. I could bring you in December communities. There's semester ones but that brings any hammer. So are we gonNA teams now to that? Now you know the other interesting thing or one of the things that I would say. Slack does a lot better even in their free tears like let's not get into a whole free versus paid and all that but slack is arguably more staple when it comes to change so for examples. One of the things I do in slack like one of the groups that participate in is built around like product and product feedback so simple things like AAC monitoring like an RSS feed for twitter search or heck just like native twitter integrations for searching for monitoring twitter searches were for watching like individual hashtags or even users things like that like that stuff is just rock-solid those plug ins don't really change they just get better over time right all those integrations that you can add verses teams you know same thing over and teams. I would like to monitor like at mentions back to my company. That connector has changed two or three times in the last couple of years every single time. It's gotten worse. And it's been deprecated to the point where they've even like just taking it out of teams and now they want to use flow to do everything or power automated with a flow rather. Let's started right. There and the functionality is not the same as it continues to the only constant with something like teams is that. It's always changing underneath you. So I can look like zoom back to how we started this conversation with okay. The settings changed for how you join a meeting but the fundamentals of how we performed. The meeting did not change right. Once we were in it was still easy to get our audio going. We could still do the recording like it was all just right there and it was front and Center slack does a big redesign but fundamentally like the core things that you know about it to be true and that you've learned about it are still true. Teams comes through and does it change and it's like who moved my fricken cheese again. It's just gone and that stuff is like that's the killer thing and that's what drives you to teams. Is You have to have this whole adoption program. It can't be just training. It needs to be more holistic versus these other tools. That just do what they mean to do. They don't have to be everything to everybody. Like zoom does not need to be the best chat messaging platform across multiple meetings at the same time. All you have to do is Click Link. Join immediate right. That's pretty easy slack. Same kind of thing like yeah you can do meetings and all that stuff in there. But what do we need to do? We need to be a great like organizational cross team chat platform. Can we do that? Yes done exactly and then going back to teams you have. We need enterprise collaboration. We need it to be secure. Because that's the other thing like one thing teams does really well is because it's in that whole ecosystem your data's going to be secure you can do. Dlp on chats. You can do the Microsoft information protection to protect sensitive content. Fundamentally teams is probably going to be more secure than any of the other platforms because that's Microsoft's target. They're targeting enterprise. They are targeting companies. That make care more about security than they do ease of use and users are maybe not going to be able to do things quite as easily or again they just need the integration. They need everything to tie together seamlessly without going installing all these integrations and going in buying five different products. That you all cobbled together to get worse because everything's built right in so well don't give me sorry. I think I think teams feels very cobbled togethers. Sometimes when you when you go to do things are so cobbled together. Well it's a private channels here. It's got speaking of cobbled together. In general it's it's not clear right. You have too much. I mean I sit there and I listened to my wife talk in the kitchen. I'll leave the door open to the office and you know still like three weeks into this. They're still talking about like well. A student clicked on planner. And what does that mean? And how did they add a planner plan to this channel? And what's going on and what's happening right the issue. I see with my wife's organization wake from a school perspective. They had to get into these tools so quick that because it's not easy to use. They haven't gone through the adoption thing. They've barely gone through. The training thing teachers are creating custom training videos for their students for how to do things and they don't know the native features of something was one this morning. Oh teacher wanted to call out like good job to a bunch of students in a particular class on their homework the night before but they just did that in just a single post in a channel. They didn't mention anybody so the students will never see it because the teacher posted at six. Am by the time those students come into school at like eleven. Am for their first conference. All the other chats are going to have pushed that way up the screen right so the notification and even if they had at mention them was that enough for the students like potentially you got to think about the kids there right like how is the kid gonNA react better. They're going to react better to seeing a red exclamation around a number when they log into teams or would they react better if when they click the exclamation like. Oh what's wrong? Maybe they saw something like appraise post with a Nice Big Banner. That says here you go. You've done something nice but if I never told you about at mentions and the type ahead stuff like yeah. I know it's there but it's Janke and it's been throttled up down left right as this whole thing kicks off so barely works now not that it ever really worked before you go ahead and combine something like that and you don't know that hey like praises there or not even like animated juicer. Things like that but you know being able to do custom memes and all that like that would all be great stuff for kids and they just don't know about it's air that's like one little feature right that could change a kids day right. Although to be fair some of that exists in slack to like slack is the same thing. If you don't mention somebody they may never see it. You still need to know about the APP mansions and some of the Plug Ins and slack some of those shifts. They have the button ready underneath. Message Click the button. Do Jeff's we're in slack. You actually have to know to go install the Jif immigration and then you have to know about the slash commands to do Jiffy or Jeff. Whatever it is. There's a few different ones there so I think some of it too at the fundamental level. Well some of the things are definitely a lot easier. One platform versus the other. At the end of the day still comes down to training. There are a lot of people got thrown into a lot of stuff without just having adequate training in any event regardless of the platform. And what it is slack. Maybe easier to find stuff because it tends to be a little bit. It's not as enterprise so I think the training tends to be a little bit simpler. It's easier to figure out how to do stuff by just googling it versus teams. You tend to dive into some of that. Enterprise eat training type stuff and not just the basic how to..

"Ten with eight gigabytes of memory and one hundred twenty eight gigs of storage available. Now Yeah and this of course was done in Beijing instead of Barcelona. They were originally going to do it. A Mobile World Congress. They they made a big deal on stage about you know the fact that yes the Krona viruses. Certainly affecting things but won't stop them. They're plowing ahead. What I've found notable is that this is only China release. They said it will be coming to other markets. They talked about you know really getting going in Europe in the future but India is in fact Janis bigger market. It's bigger than China four Xiaomi. And they did not give Indian release date. I don't know if that's because the worried about manufacturing yields Because of the shutdown of plants in China but I Jami has plans outside of China to So I'd be very curious what this looks like an India because that's super important as a market for Jamie absolutely. These are some fairly high in phones and when when you compare them to the prices of phones that we generally see here in the US. They are a third to half as much so. I wonder if you're GONNA start seeing a lot of Americans foregoing Samson foregoing Motorola or Sony and actually seen if they can't get their hands on one of these are no. It's a little bit more difficult now than it used to be a couple of years ago but these are fairly high quality phones. They're putting together. Yeah one one plus Xiaomi both I get a lot of attention from the US market but one plus has done a pretty good job of getting into the US market. Jami keeps saying they're going to get into the US market and then it just gets tougher and tougher all the time for them. So I think that's why they've they've changed to focusing on Europe for the time being because I that could be a stepping stone for them. But you're right. You know they they make some pretty compelling hardware at an affordable price not say. They couldn't increase the price though if they bring into another market folks if you want to get all the tech headlines each day in about five minutes be sure to subscribe to daily Tech Headlines. Dot Com Slash. Talk Slash Doc. I mean stock for the company slack. That makes you know. The team building messaging surged on Monday when they reported that IBM would become its biggest customer and then after hours trading fell when they clarified that. Ibm already was their biggest customer Because IBM had a contract to use slack in a trial mode but the actual news. Is that the rollout across. Ibm's entire digital workplace will be an all their geographies all over the world after the launch of its Enterprise Grid Service last year slack reported. It had one hundred sixty five thousand IBM users and the official launch will push up quite a bit three hundred fifty thousand That'll doubled the number of users but it it it did bring some snickers. Didn't it rob when people really did? I thought that was. I thought that was pretty funny. It's like wait a minute isn't. Ibm You know. This is like something that I knew. Now as you said they did. Add a whopping or boatload of new users but it really did Surge that's not to the point. They actually had to halt Trading I think about ten fifteen minutes before the market closed during regular session and then came back on after. They made their announcement an after hours on Monday. But that's that's interesting because You know I in a in a different life. I have spent a lot of time. A lot of time working With slack. And I've been working with teams since Before Microsoft even officially announced it and all I can say is that Microsoft is absolutely coming after slack. you know so fervently that. I'm I'm wondering is slack on ultimately be a takeover target for some larger company. Could a company like Google or Amazon? Or maybe salesforce. Actually you know. Take a slack attitude their portfolio Because you know the thing was slack. You know the issues that I see with them is that slack. You know it's it's real nice for you know for free but you only get like ten thousand messages and it's it's fairly hamstring for the free version but corporations are using the paid version. The paid version is more expensive than Microsoft teams or significantly more expensive than Microsoft teams. And the thing that Microsoft teams has going for is that it probably gives you seventy percent of what slack gives you but it gives you a one hundred percent of what Microsoft office gives you that that's included in your team subscription. So what slack is having the issue with his is just slack. They integrate with everything else. But you know when when you're looking at you know a business. It was like wait a minute. We're already using office and I'm already paying for teams. Do I pay additional money to get over and and you slack? Even if there are some features and slack the currently don't exist in teams. Will they be here soon enough by the time? I rolled this out to my sixty seventy thousand users in my workplace and that's why slack is trying to make the IBM deal sound. Big is to say like look. We know that Microsoft has built an advantage of already being there for office three sixty five customers but we're still a good choice for IBM IBM decided to pay for US anyway. So they're trying to make that argument. I think it interesting to think about slack. Getting acquired my guess is slack. Doesn't want to get acquired. They see themselves becoming a big enough company that they just start branching out and they don't have to compete But they they are in the position to to branch out and expand at this point. Google's not probably going to buy them because they're developing their own in house thing would complicate things to buy slack. But it's not impossible. Amazon doesn't really have an enterprise. Software level offering them might be a good way for them to get into it and it kind of fits that acquisition profile salesforce is another interesting one where they could just slot it in and start making it part of their their offerings. I and maybe I don't know on the outside. Maybe a work or somebody like that might be interested. Who knows in the meantime though? If you're making this decision for yourself you know you have to also think in my keep in mind do I want either one of these Because research from the University of California and Humble University found that workers can lose up to twenty three minutes on a task every time they are interrupted. And the both teams and slack. Both they interrupt you Quite frequently science and that was the go ahead. Scientists found no difference in distraction between slack and email. Just so you know. A lot of people have their alerts turned on for slacker. Maybe not for email one of the researchers involved. Gloria Mark said the true cost is not so much productivity but stress. People are still getting work done but they have to take longer to do it because they keep getting interrupted. I think that I think that's really important. I when we were talking about this earlier I was like I mean. It's a little bit more productive than email but it depends on where you work right and it depends on the structure of which your organization might have a few channels. Or maybe say okay. This team only needs to be in these few channels because we want everyone to be focused. That isn't always the case. Sometimes it can be you know forty channels that you have to manage and be pinged on and get notifications from all day long the whole idea behind slack and teams and anything that's going to become a competitor in the future is this is more efficient than email. You can have more categories you can keep conversations more focused and I think that that is true for me I am. I'm a slack user. I'm in several different slack. Teams one of them is purely just friends and we have. We've made channels just to keep ourselves on topic on a variety of things. That's the sort of thing where I have to mute it. Sometimes when I'm working because it is just a time waster and it definitely is. I mean it's a time waster the same way. Any group text chat would be but But for for work we use slack for a lot of our pre show stuff and I find it very organized in helpful but if we had many more channels it would start to derail me probably many more users. I mean we use it in the TAT exist to the show and we rarely use it outside of that time grain. I recently did some consulting for a company that had probably thirty five. Forty users They they were geographically dispersed throughout the Midwest And I think the biggest location may be had nine or ten people in it so slack kind of made sense because it did allow everyone who is working remotely. Kinda feel like they were being included in everything but there were for thirty five people. I think we have sixty or seventy channels so it got really really chatty and one of the things that the The CEO of that company. He was really into the pomodoro method. Where you you spend twenty five to thirty minutes without any interruption working on a task so he just implemented a pop implemented a policy where each team member had to do He called him sprints six per day. You had six times where you had an uninterrupted thirty minutes where you weren't checking email you weren't having any conversations you were simply just You know hunkered down and developing or you know or drawing or doing whatever you did you know for the stickler organization and this is very anecdotal. We didn't actually measure this with tools. But it seemed like You know the actual productivity went up so much so that I actually still implement hormone. Oral polio method. Now something. I wasn't doing before but it's it is you know it's very easy all turn it you know. I I like to work when I have the TV on. But when I find that I turn it off and I go for twenty five to thirty minutes without any interruption. The amount of work I can get done in that time frame sometimes stack them and do an hour but the amount of work I can get done. Uninterrupted is really impressive compared to constantly being bothered by SMS or slack as in this case teams. Whatever you know whatever APP you're using for For Messaging and presence. That's a really smart thing to to experiment with. I think I almost WANNA pomodoro button on my computer. I could just be like you did all going under for the whatever twenty five minutes thirty minutes. That's great because it keeps you out of meetings and keeps you out of distractions and then something like teams are slack. Doesn't end up being counterproductive. Right it ends up being productive. Because it's still helping you get the advantages of staying in touch. I think what happened with slack. And this is true of teams or facebook workplace or whatever is that it didn't actually reduce email. It just added more communications. Exactly it's it's yeah it just kind of morphed into something else but then email. It didn't go away either. I'm I'm a big fan of shedding things off especially like if I'm editing video or something I will. It helps me hold myself accountable if I'm just like Wifi off because everything's local right now and if I can't get this done in the time that I thought I could get it done. Then that's on me because nobody nobody interrupted me. He thinks everybody who participates in.

They couldn't increase the price though if they bring into another market folks if you want to get all the tech headlines each day in about five minutes be sure to subscribe to daily Tech Headlines. Dot Com Slash. Talk Slash Doc. I mean stock for the company slack. That makes you know. The team building messaging surged on Monday when they reported that IBM would become its biggest customer and then after hours trading fell when they clarified that. Ibm already was their biggest customer Because IBM had a contract to use slack in a trial mode but the actual news. Is that the rollout across. Ibm's entire digital workplace will be an all their geographies all over the world after the launch of its Enterprise Grid Service last year slack reported. It had one hundred sixty five thousand IBM users and the official launch will push up quite a bit three hundred fifty thousand That'll doubled the number of users but it it it did bring some snickers. Didn't it rob when people really did? I thought that was. I thought that was pretty funny. It's like wait a minute isn't. Ibm You know. This is like something that I knew. Now as you said they did. Add a whopping or boatload of new users but it really did Surge that's not to the point. They actually had to halt Trading I think about ten fifteen minutes before the market closed during regular session and then came back on after. They made their announcement an after hours on Monday. But that's that's interesting because You know I in a in a different life. I have spent a lot of time. A lot of time working With slack. And I've been working with teams since Before Microsoft even officially announced it and all I can say is that Microsoft is absolutely coming after slack. you know so fervently that. I'm I'm wondering is slack on ultimately be a takeover target for some larger company. Could a company like Google or Amazon? Or maybe salesforce. Actually you know. Take a slack attitude their portfolio Because you know the thing was slack. You know the issues that I see with them is that slack. You know it's it's real nice for you know for free but you only get like ten thousand messages and it's it's fairly hamstring for the free version but corporations are using the paid version. The paid version is more expensive than Microsoft teams or significantly more expensive than Microsoft teams. And the thing that Microsoft teams has going for is that it probably gives you seventy percent of what slack gives you but it gives you a one hundred percent of what Microsoft Office gives you that that's included in your team subscription. So what slack is having the issue with his. It's just slack. They integrate with everything else. But you know when when you're looking at you know a business. It was like wait a minute. We're already using office and I'm already paying for teams. Do I pay additional money to get over and and you slack? Even if there are some features and slack the currently don't exist in teams. Will they be here soon enough by the time? I rolled this out to my sixty seventy thousand users in my workplace and that's why slack is trying to make the IBM deal sound. Big is to say like look. We know that Microsoft has built an advantage of already being there for office three sixty five customers but we're still a good choice for IBM IBM decided to pay for US anyway. So they're trying to make that argument. I think it interesting to think about slack. Getting acquired my guess is slack. Doesn't want to get acquired. They see themselves becoming a big enough company that they just start branching out and they don't have to compete But they they are in the position to to branch out and expand at this point. Google's not probably going to buy them because they're developing their own in house thing would complicate things to buy slack. But it's not impossible. Amazon doesn't really have an enterprise. Software level offering them might be a good way for them to get into it and it kind of fits that acquisition profile salesforce is another interesting one where they could just slot it in and start making it part of their their offerings. I and maybe I don't know on the outside. Maybe a work or somebody like that might be interested. Who knows in the meantime though? If you're making this decision for yourself you know you have to also think in my keep in mind do I want either one of these Because research from the University of California and Humble University found that workers can lose up to twenty three minutes on a task every time they are interrupted. And the both teams and slack. Both they interrupt you Quite frequently science and that was the go ahead. Scientists found no difference in distraction between slack and email. Just so you know. A lot of people have their alerts turned on for slacker. Maybe not for email one of the researchers involved. Gloria Mark said the true cost is not so much productivity but stress. People are still getting work done but they have to take longer to do it because they keep getting interrupted. Yeah I think I think that's really important. I when we were talking about this earlier I was like I mean. It's a little bit more productive than email but it depends on where you work right and it depends on the structure of which your organization might have a few channels. Or maybe say okay. This team only needs to be in these few channels because we want everyone to be focused. That isn't always the case. Sometimes it can be you know forty channels that you have to manage and be pinged on and get notifications from all day long the whole idea behind slack and teams and anything that's going to become a competitor in the future is this is more efficient than email. You can have more categories you can keep conversations more focused and I think that that is true for me I am. I'm a slack user. I'm in several different slack. Teams one of them is purely just friends and we have. We've made channels just to keep ourselves on topic on a variety of things. That's the sort of thing where I have to mute it. Sometimes when I'm working because it is just a time waster and it definitely is. I mean it's a time waster the same way. Any group text chat would be but But for for work we use slack for a lot of our pre show stuff and I find it very organized in helpful but if we had many more channels it would start to derail me probably many more users. I mean we use it in the TAT exist to the show and we rarely use it outside of that time grain. I recently did some consulting for a company that had probably thirty five. Forty users They they were geographically dispersed throughout the Midwest And I think the biggest location may be had nine or ten people in it so slack just kind of made sense because it did allow everyone who is working remotely. Kinda feel like they were being included in everything but there were for thirty five people I think we have sixty or seventy channels so it got really really chatty and one of the things that the The CEO OF THAT COMPANY. He was really into the pomodoro method. Where you you spend twenty five to thirty minutes without any interruption working on a task so he just implement a pop implemented a policy where each team member had to do He called him sprints six per day. You had six times where you had an uninterrupted thirty minutes where you weren't checking email you aren't having any conversations you were simply just You know hunkered down and developing or you know or drawing or doing whatever you did you know for the stickler organization and this is very anecdotal. We didn't actually measure this with tools. But it seemed like You know the actual productivity went up so much so that I actually still implement hormone. Oral polio method. Now something. I wasn't doing before but it's it is you know it's very easy all turn it you know. I I like to work when I have the TV on. But when I find that I turn it off and I go for twenty five to thirty minutes without any interruption. The amount of work I can get done in that time frame sometimes stack them and do an hour but the amount of work I can get done. Uninterrupted is really impressive compared to constantly being bothered by SMS or slack as in this case teams. Whatever you know whatever APP you're using for For Messaging and presence. That's a really smart thing to to experiment with. I think I almost WANNA pomodoro button on my computer. I could just be like you did all going under for the whatever twenty five minutes thirty minutes. That's great because it keeps you out of meetings and keeps you out of distractions and then something like teams are slack. Doesn't end up being counterproductive. Right it ends up being productive. Because it's still helping you get the advantages of staying in touch. I think what happened with slack. And this is true of teams or facebook workplace or whatever is that it didn't actually reduce email. It just added more communications. Exactly it's it's Ya just kind of morphed into something else but then email. It didn't go away either. I'm I'm a big fan of shedding things off especially like if I'm editing video or something I will. It helps me hold myself accountable if I'm just like Wifi off because everything's local right now and if I can't get this done in the time that I thought I could get it done. Then that's on me because nobody nobody interrupted me. He thinks everybody who participates in.

"Ten with eight gigabytes of memory and one hundred twenty eight gigs of storage available. Now Yeah and this of course was done in Beijing instead of Barcelona. They were originally going to do it. A Mobile World Congress. They they made a big deal on stage about you know the fact that yes the Krona viruses. Certainly affecting things but won't stop them. They're plowing ahead. What I've found notable is that this is only China release. They said it will be coming to other markets. They talked about you know really getting going in Europe in the future but India is in fact Janis bigger market. It's bigger than China four Xiaomi. And they did not give Indian release date. I don't know if that's because the worried about manufacturing yields Because of the shutdown of plants in China but I Jami has plans outside of China to So I'd be very curious what this looks like an India because that's super important as a market for Jamie absolutely. These are some fairly high in phones and when when you compare them to the prices of phones that we generally see here in the US. They are a third to half as much so. I wonder if you're GONNA start seeing a lot of Americans foregoing Samson foregoing Motorola or Sony and actually seen if they can't get their hands on one of these are no. It's a little bit more difficult now than it used to be a couple of years ago but these are fairly high quality phones. They're putting together. Yeah one one plus Xiaomi both I get a lot of attention from the US market but one plus has done a pretty good job of getting into the US market. Jami keeps saying they're going to get into the US market and then it just gets tougher and tougher all the time for them.

"The company shares opened at thirty eight to fifth thirty fifty forty percent of its reference pricing. At one point climbed as high as two dollars a share it came back down closing the day with a market cap of nineteen and a half billion dollars more than double its last valuation on the private markets, slacks listing makes it one of the most valuable companies to hit the US market this year. But will it be able to avoid this lump? That's plagued Uber and lift both trading below the right, peo- prices. Joining us to discuss injuries and Horwitz board partner. Stevenson off ski and Bloomberg's Ellen Hewitt. Andriessen Harwood's is an investor in slack and Steven. You worked at Microsoft for more than two decades, which of course. Is a slack competitor. And one biggest competitor is with deep pockets and a ton of users. So can't slack fend off the big guys. Well, this one might be more of a question of can Microsoft slack right now in the way that the industry leaders, talked about slack is generally viewed as the leader certainly by by a bunch of measures and ten million daily active user monthly active users, and, and so on. So I think they're in a really great position. The industry is undergoing phenomenal amount of change of the way, people work, people are looking for alternatives to Email things that work faster smoother integrate more software. I think slack does a fantastic job of doing that. Ellen in terms of the mechanics today, we had a lot of questions about why they chose direct listing. You talk to Stewart. I talked to Stuart the CEO, Stewart Butterfield. Do you think we got an answer? I think so he was finally now that quiet periods over able to explain that the main reason slack was looking to do a direct listing with because they just didn't want to dilute their shares any further. They have a lot of cash. They feel confident that they don't need to raise any more money in the length of their. Their lifetime, as company and doing a direct listening allows you to do that, just allows you to go public put your shares on the market and not dilute by issuing new shares to sell then why did they so much money up to this point? I mean he has said that sittings in the past. We have more money than we'll ever need. We've got money for a rainy day and whatever fifty years. So why it must've felt worth it to him at the time. He said to me earlier this morning. We were always getting really fair valuation. We found that capital was really available, and it's true. Slack has always been sort of darling of the venture capital world. And I can imagine they were really able to probably negotiate the deals that they felt were really good for them in the private market, and just don't feel need to raise more. I have a chart here on the Bloomberg, which just shows how US IPO's and US tech PEOs have been performing so far this year. So. Stephen, you ran office. He ran windows, one of the big questions about slack is, is it just a nice to have, you know what if companies are going to cut budgets if there's an economic damned downturn, and there is a lot of macro economic uncertainty. Why would they pay for slack and not office? Or why would they pay for slack and cut office? You know what I mean, I think the thing about the workplace in even during bad times. It turns out that the companies think about information technology is a way to, to invest, and we're to make it through the bad times company becomes more efficient, communicate better, you get more done. You serve your customers better and that actually reduces the impact of economic cycles, and we've seen that for decades, and terms of the way that technology investing looks, and I think in this case slack isn't really a nice to have. It's, it's fundamentally rethinking the way that companies really approached the sharing of information and collaboration and work and making. Much more modern moving from silos of Email to an open communication platform. Well, you know how corporate corporate American can be slack is cool hip, and it's easy to use and all those things are great. But do you think more traditional companies will really see the value in it? Well, they already do slack has hundreds of paying customers with, with very large deal sizes, and they're already traditional companies see the value in all of this. Whether it's a target, or even an IBM sort of the most traditional of traditional companies. And so I don't think it's as much about seeing value as much as the company embracing this idea of, like, wow, we can really do better as a company and the tools that we use as a company or what can differentiate us to our customers, or it's a super competitive labor market. And we're raising this generation of employees now that are entering the workforce that are used to instant messaging that are used to lightweight communication, and they're also used to openness. And those are all the characteristics of slack, not the characteristics of Email, and in some cases, workers are much more responsive on slack than they are on their corporate messaging services. Ellen what are the risks that? What are the challenges that lie ahead? Well, we've already seen that slacks. Revenue growth has slowed over the last couple years down from about one hundred ten. A couple years ago to projected fifty percent or so this year. So I think there are questions of what's going to help bolster that revenue going forward, had it explained to me that, that slowing is just the law of large numbers, the bigger. That's lot. Get the harder. It is to double its size every year, not make sense. But I think that's an ongoing question for the company and other thing is and Stewart, the CEO has talked about this himself trying to explain what slack is to people who don't use that. It's a kind of a different category. It's not easily comparable to something that we've seen before. So not just messaging, it's not. L killer, you can share file. Yeah. Have calls and, and that's something that they just need to keep working on. So it's easy. Once you get someone to use it, but it's a little hard to make that first pitch. When someone just thinks it is something other people use. All right. Ellen Hewitt Stevenson ski at four partner Andriessen Horowitz, we're going to listen to how they tell their story, I spoke with slacks Stewart Butterfield and the CFO Alan, Jim after the opening bell and asked how confident Stewart felt about the choice to list directly. Take a listen. We'll see. But I think this point it has been working exactly.

Instant messaging service is expected to go public tomorrow, and I see perfect. Because somehow slack has convinced companies that letting people ping messages at each other, not just about work, but also about pets, and parenting and happy hours. And what have you somehow that's good for business. Here's marketplace's Stewart, you probably know slack as this sound messages. Come in and the place where you get your bosses latest round a messages from your coworkers, and where you can reply to the mole with a gif of a head exploding. We asked viewer impressions of slack Jonathan center in New York got in touch. He runs marketing at a small supermarket chain. He's a fan. We're able to use the platform pretty much all day and slack over all sorts of different files. It's pretty amazing to. That's what slack wants to hear that. It's a replacement for the dreaded Email but beyond that, what is slack in the s one listing perspectives? The company says, quote, we and the rest of the world still have a hard time explaining slack. It's been cold. An operating system for teams a hub collaboration connective tissue across the organization and much else. I do like this notion of the connective tissue within a workplace or workforce, practically speaking. That's a lot of what does April, Renae advises startups and others on the future of work. She says the ability for slack uses to customize, like adding apps means that it can change to suit teams needs when it is, perhaps today. But that's different than it was yesterday. And that's certainly going to be different than what it's going to be Thursday onwards. I look at slack. In a way, it's almost as adolescence slugs acceptance by companies happened organically says Ray Wong analyst, constellation research, which may be why it's fed better than other inst-. Int- messaging apps. What happened was people were just downloading the software. They found that the easiest way to work across geographies across standards and pretty soon, like the whole company at slack accounts, and they started to realize, this is enterprise piece of software, a report by mea, which helps companies integrate messaging platforms says seventy three percent of businesses with over ten thousand employees on now using slack.

"Slack may choose a less traditional route to the public market the messaging platform said to be eyeing a direct listing choosing to sell it shares directly to bidders. Twenty nineteen is expected to be a banner year for tech IPO's market volatility, and the government shutdown may lead to some delays here. Disgust gained sight CEO Nick meta gained makes customer success software for companies like slack giving them unique insight into a host of how well companies are performing. So we make of socks attention decision here. None of us know, exactly what slack is planning is as you know. But I think what's unique about slack is that they're not your average cloud company. A lot of people talk about cloud companies being unicorns of these. That term gets us. A lot slack is the unicorns unicorn it really is one of the most special private cloud companies out there. They've got a brand. That's unbelievable. Every other cloud company looks up to them not just to their revenue growth, but their product their culture and their company that's raised so much money that they don't need more capital. So if anyone could do a direct listing. It's like, well, there's reports that Airbnb might be considering this as well. I mean, do you think this could become a trend or tempting for other companies trying to get out the gate? I think it's a trend for the very upper echelon of companies. I don't think it's a trend that you're gonna see dozens of companies doing this. I think that there's companies because there are some companies that have built so much power and so much brand over many years, right? It's companies like Airbnb Uber another Spotify private for so long. But most companies don't have the ability to do that either. They're not as well known because. Behind the scenes like a B two B company, for example, or they actually need more capital. Most SAS companies need more capital is it going to the IPO so gains. I it's one of those companies that always comes up, you know, in terms of people expecting you to come to market at some point. You know, what's your time line is this causing you to sort of reflect on how you decide to do this. We're we're kind of behind this big cloud trend is companies move more to cloud and subscription. So we think there's a huge opportunity for.
