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 And if anyone finds out about it (including Slack employees — consider the leaks), they are done for.

@ivan I am sure that carefully considering the future cost of their actions is a very high priority for social media companies

(stares at Mark Zuckerberg, then at fourth wall)

@natecull I'm not so sure that Slack's network effects are *that* high. :)
