Should OpenFarm try out Slack for real-time discussion?
Slack is a replacement to IRC for real-time chat. It has different chat rooms for splitting out topics (ie. development, general discussion, deployment, crop info, etc). It has some great advanced features too for hooking in services (ie. live deploy info/errors, twitter mentions, etc), super easy file uploads for discussing mock-ups, etc.
I think it would help us feel more cohesive as a remote team across time-zones and help those on the outside feel more included in the discussion; one downside is that new members have to be explicitly added ($7/mo service has guest abilities), but I imagine we can make this process very welcoming and generally this is a tool for the working team.
Should we try it out?

We will give Slack a shot for real-time communication with larger community decisions being made on Loomio (hopefully with some Slack integration too!)
