Think of all of the folks that think that Slack/ IM are a great way to communicate.
At some point they'll realize they've created an inbox with expectations. They'll start trying to figure out how to make themselves less available. The beauty of email is once you realize that you can delete messages and not have to see them again email becomes a game you can win.
Problem is for a lot of folks their inbox is their todo list because they don't have a good system for managing it outside of email.
