The Power of Play


Seth Stevenson talking to Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield:

“Play is a really fundamental activity that’s perhaps underappreciated in mainstream culture,” says Butterfield. “It’s a great basis for human interaction. Playfulness means not just silliness but an experimental attitude. Looking at the world sideways and being curious.” Slack can sometimes feel like a game—one where the other players are your colleagues, the mission is always changing, and the objective is to treat one another with kindness and produce wonderful things together.

Well said.
