That, and it is like IRC except you get a backlog that includes times
when you weren't connected. And it supports multimedia and formatting
in posts (think /code and such) vs the use of pastebins or having each
line go out as a separate post mixed with who knows what. And you can
edit/etc the past.
A bit like a merger of IRC and a forum.
Personally I'm not wowed, but it does seem silly for everybody to run
an IRC client 24x7 to create a personal channel log just so that they
can see what happened while they were otherwise offline. Addition of
some of these features to IRC would go a long way, and of course there
are things like Matrix which provide a more slack-like experience but
with a more distributed setup.
