I’ve been thinking a lot about how the internet I want to be part of is focused more in small spaces—like Micro.blog—and I think Yap is an interesting idea in a similar vein. Slack, while wonderful for instantaneous communication is a river of chat that quickly bogs down and becomes ineffective when treated as a knowledge source or repository. Chat is—or in my mind, should be—ephemeral and Yap helps make that possible in a world where so much is archived for seemingly little reason.
