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.

To me Slack is just one of those "ooo lookie, corporate option!" kinda products. The kind of product middle managers and hack tech leads pitch to higher ups b/c it makes them look 'relevant' and 'with it'.

You can easily run an XMPP server and take care of your 'company-wide communication' issue, but that requires work and know-how.
