    How did it turn out? Reminds me of when I used to visit my sister in DC. I’d end up at dinner with all these experts in various fields and would just safely throw in a joke here and there Costanza style.

    It's a nice back and forth - they talk about stuff way over my head in their field and I discuss my various exploits in the restaurant/nightlife game.

    Also if anyone is ever proven incorrect about anything they have to take a penalty shot dictated by the other people at the table - so basically I stay in my lane on the physics and whatnot.

    Company is transitioning to Teams from Skype and it's extremely annoying to try and message someone since the adoption rate is like 50% so far.

    Teams is Microsoft's version of Slack (I think, I've never used Slack).

    Team teams. So much better. Skype sucks.
    Better cameras, plus gifs.

    I set my Skype location to something like Message me on teams or I will not respond.

    We completed this about 6-12 months ago. Same deal, at one point I had 7 IM clients installed. No mandates on what to use. I wanted to murder someone.

    They have added Teams to our system but haven't asked us to use it. So far everyone is still using Jabber.

    I'm not sure if they're actually planning for us to switch or what.

    All you people that do Slack, Teams, etc do you buy the oft-repeated phrase "email is being phased out"? That's tough for me to imagine in my job but we don't use any of those things

    No. You still need email for external communication. Hard to imagine a collaboration software phasing out email, unless theres a google of collab software that comes about, where basically everyone uses it.

    Nah I don’t think it will go away within 10 years or so. IM isn’t integrated enough at this point. So many platforms where email pretty much is universal.

    I don’t see email going away. Email is admissible evidence for a lawsuit, our IM transcripts disappear after logout or 30 days specifically to keep offhand comments out of discovery.

    Shady or not, it's a pretty common practice. The CTO or CIO would have to be an idiot to keep IMs saved. Employees should also have a method to speak freely about problems or mistakes without worrying about the legal impacts. My company frequently has lessons learned meetings in the presence of our legal counsel so we can freely discuss design mistakes or best practices.

    I think the conversation is geared more for internal use and collaboration. I can tell you that IM does probably save our internal teams at least 50-100 emails a day on average. External is always going to be there.

    We have both Skype and Teams. IT folks seem to use Teams primarily to communicate. I wish everyone did.

    "We have different speeds, and we argue over it constantly"
    "I self-deprecatingly call myself a pervert, but that's not what it is," he said. "I just like it. I'm sexual."
    "I'd always thought I was a romantic and that when I fall in love, that stuff fades away. It does for some years — enough to be like, 'I should get married, and I'll be different,' " Middleditch said. "But it's part of me. If that's part of your being and it feels important to you, find a way to explore it, because repression sucks."
    "I'm gas, and she's brakes."

    AKA, he wants to bang anything that walks, they made an agreement. Doesn't sound like she's doing a lot of swinging, it sounds like he is.

    i'm sorry i made an assumption and doubted their true love for each other. Their love is one that goes more than skin deep, a skin that he rubs on other woman regularly with her knowledge, because she loves the man within.
