Stewart Butterfield, the Co-Founder and CEO of Slack, was captivated by the early internet and co-founded both Slack and Flickr.

"90% of my job is to make sure that the organization is performing at the highest possible level."
New work is definitely about the people. It’s ‘people before paper’. But if you were to ask someone what communication tool truly represents new work, in almost all cases, people will say: Slack. We had the honour of meeting Stewart Butterfield, the founder and CEO of Slack. To put it in perspective, Slack is known as one of the fastest growing companies in history and one of the hottest startups of the time. With a valuation of over 5 billion US dollars, Slack is still growing with roughly 1000 people working within the organisation. Stewart deeply cares about the way they work at Slack and he shared with me very openly how his role as a leader has changed. Successful, yet humble. Innovative, yet down-to-earth, with a very fundamental understanding for what is important in life and work. It was definitely an interview that I enjoyed a lot, since we have many clients who use this tool and ask us for our input and advice. So for this episode, we went one step further - directly to the source: How Slack is used at Slack effectively and how they live and push ‘new work’ to new limits.

People have a tendency to always be looking for the latest and greatest software to do their work with. They want something new, something shiny. And while tools are important and when possible you should try to use the best tool for the job, this quest to always find something better will not magically make you better at what you do.
Photoshop doesn’t make your ideas any better. Ulysses doesn’t make your writing magically more profound. OnmiFocus won’t make your more productive on its own. But we sometimes tell ourselves this is the case. We think we can get out of a slump by getting a new, cool app to work with. That may lead to a temporary surge, it’s only temporary.
Focus on what tools remove friction from your life. That is my main motivator for software and I’m trying to get better at optimizing for that over looking for the new and flashy stuff.

Today I have for you a tale as old as time… the ‘I’m moving to DC not knowing anyone and finding my place’ story. We all know DC is a hub for people from ALL over the world (although let’s all be cognisant to not fall into the “no one is from DC trap”). With fantastic nightlife, a young vibrant population, lots of culture, and let’s face it, a ton of A type people who know how to network, moving to DC can be exhilarating and exciting to some and intimidating and terrible to others. I talk to 3 recent-ish transplants on how they found each other and made their homes in DC.
One hundred years of underground sound. Rock, jazz, psych, funk, indie rock, dub, classical, world, metal, ambient and the artists that make Arlington and DC famous. The 11/08/17 edition, with special guest, violinist James Wolf. James talks about his work with the VHF records artists From Quagmire and Fern Knight, his recent solo work on Verses Records and his wide-ranging work with groups like the Orchid, Phoenix Auto Group, Laconic Chamber and more. Two hours of experimental violin, the Beach Boys and even Sun Ra.
