The year is 2016. The month is February? Today it is Thursday the 25th, right now 1:52 PM EST. It'll probably be a different time later, probably even when I'm done writing this post. Maybe even when I'm done writing this sentence. Yep, 1:53.
#caffeinelounge is attempting a don't-call-it-a-comeback via the professional millenial firing network Slack. I've been erroneously calling it Stack for three days. Goes to show how unprofessional I am.
The difference is that this is just a closed community now. New people can't wander in, and once you're in the group, you're in forever and have access to everything that has ever been said, including all those mean things we said about you behind your back. But different people are active at different hours.
(The other difference is that this platform has a great mobile component and I've just been on #cl like, while riding the bus. It's nuts.)
But what this means is that you have to be jumped in to have access to the group. If you want to try this with us (there's like 15 of us in already), get in touch with me or Elsh or Isis or Gomez or maybe other people can add people too? It has been going strong for a solid 48 hours and it has already changed my life.
Come be friends with us again! We're mostly all the same.
