Global productivity spiked during Slack downtime
A tremendous boost in productivity has been recorded globally on January 4th 2021. The precise timeline heavily correlates with the downtime of Slack, a popular team communication application whose mission is to increase productivity by converting every weekday into a continuous meeting.
The last boost of productivity of this magnitude has been observed during Google's global outage a few weeks prior. Project managers worldwide are hesitant to draw conclusions from these isolated incidents.
