“Because it lacks message threading , in which messages take the form of a set of ordered, often nested replies to an initial post, it’s not easy to track specific discussions.”
Glenn Fleishman, Take Control of Slack Basics

“This man is the bee's knees, Arthur, he is the wasp's nipples. He is, I would go so far as to say, the entire set of erogenous zones of every major flying insect of the Western world.”
Douglas Adams, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

“He visited me in the Stanford hospital twice during the weeks when I was recovering”
Brent Schlender, Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary Leader

“some members burned out so completely that they were never able to work in the high-tech industry again.”
