The Fediverse At Work

What if, instead of sharing a Github Pull Request URL in Slack, your Slack team channel could instead be subscribed to the Github repository. Maybe new Pull Requests are broadcasted to followers, and replies from Slack users to those posts are sent as comments to the Pull Request in addition to being threaded in Slack.

A really compelling idea from Mehul Kar. Tons of work productivity tools are built from the start with integrations in mind, but those integrations aren’t bi-directional. And every tool needs to rebuild the whole ecosystem.
