Instant Messaging (IM) platforms such as Slack, Hipchat, Skype chat and a host of other options have features to help teams separate their work brain from their silly brain. This is another area where virtual tools can provide a better experience than in-person interactions. For example, I am currently working with a team that has the following chat rooms:
- Program planning
- Market sizing and analysis
- Product definition
- Control nerding (my personal favorite)
