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 It's different to mail as a service or cloud document storage or private cloud code repos how?

@galaxis It's equally as evil as the first two, and we are going to regret those two HARD.

The third one - if the cloud truly IS 'private', ie, physically local, provably not subject to mass untraceable at-will automated data harvesting by unknown third parties - is much less evil.

@natecull Yeah, sorry, wrong choice of words. Should have used something like "non-public".
