If you've been living in a communication blackout or a cave without wi-fi, you might have heard that Salesforce announced their purchase of Slack for $27.7 billion. Something I wasn't aware of is that Slack might have been ripe for the taking. Entering 2020, it had lost around 40% of its value since it went public. 😯
Although there's no impact on WordPress or the tech world in general at this time, many people in the WordPress community do use Slack. Of course, many people have opinions about this acquisition.
