Adam W.,

regarding slack and the "clones" they have  irc gateways and  space for
uploaded files (not  email)  which could be  useful for  irc (or a  4ase
into irc avenue ---in lieu of  atrocities like Mibbit) I It would likely be
more of a on-boarding thing. Personally I  am on  two IRC gateway'd  slack
communities if  someone wants/ needs help setting one up if we ever go that
route   (The "in the browser" aspect which is the slack default is likely
to be less scary for 'new users' as well.

All that said slack is  in no means a perfect solution but is  a very make
it what you will, get from it what you put in kinda thing.
