What I don't get about Slack or any other 'chat as a service' system is why tech companies would willingly backdoor themselves with a surveillance system to harvest all their most private in-house discussions.

All those chat logs must be worth quite a bit to the right buyers.


@natecull At least in the automobile industry I haven't seen anyone using using it. We were using selfhosted HipChat but are moving to Zulip, and I introduced Mattermost and Rocket.chat at our customers. Would love to use Matrix.org instead but it seems not polished enough yet for really big companies.
