Under the effortlessly cool ticker “WORK,” slack, the email-killing enterprise messaging app blazes a trail to a debut 49% bounce.

Congratulations to Stewart Butterfield and an incredible team!

Believe it or not, but s.l.a.c.k.h.q. was a backronym derived from Searchable Log of All Conversation and Knowledge.

About his coming of age:

I was from a pretty small town in British Columbia, Victoria, British Columbia, and I was at the University of Victoria. And my friends who went away to different schools, I could communicate with them. But also I could find people who shared interest in the same obscure philosophers and the same obscure music. And saw even back then, when there’s maybe tens of thousands of people online in total, including all of the academics. There were communities for model train enthusiasts, and there were communities for breast cancer survivors. And that experience of seeing technology’s power to connect people was a theme
that, I think, goes through everything that I did since. So because the web came up while I was in college, my summer job every summer was making web pages for people. HTML was simple enough that I could learn it back then. And I studied philosophy. I went to grad school....

Another note about WORK and their listing today on the NYSE: they chose to do a direct listing, which means that the allocation of the new shares is determined by a machine, there is no lockup, and simply put the highest bidder wins.

So your job might be doing stuff in Excel or might be doing stuff in an IDE or doing stuff in Salesforce or whatever your role-specific function is. But most of the time is someone telling you what you’re supposed to be doing. You attending a meeting discussing what you’re supposed to be doing. You reading or writing email about what you are doing. And just that need to coordinate people is a really big part of how we work.

It’s a little burgundy, we’ll give you that

But slack has the violet vibe. It’s mellow and bold at the same time.

Violet as Extreme. Check this place out!

“The flux of movements in the interior space has been a major theme from the beginning on, and the carpet was personalized as an interior map that charts the different functional areas by the use of printed texts and paths. This adds to the fact that the entire space can be read as a communicating body that facilitates the movement within it and the reading of the separate areas. The strong colors chosen for highlighting the space set landmarks in the black surrounding. For the whole interior design we strived to create a strong conceptual identity around the theme of the Blackbox, defining all the elements that make up the whole, the logo, the furniture ant the entire interior context.”

Gucci Flora Print Metal Folding Table

“The metal folding table features a round tray with the symbolic Flora print, a design originally created for the House by artist Vittorio Accornero in the '60s. The names of metaphorical terrains love must navigate are listed underneath the Gucci logo. The terrains are from the 1654’s 'La Carte de Tendre' — the map of an imaginary land conceived by French novelist Madeleine de Scudéry. Set atop three legs, the table can be folded and features a ring at the top to hang.”
