Sometimes, it depresses me the amount that the Wikimedia world uses things like Google docs, Slack, and other proprietary platforms to create content. It's usually not stuff that'll end up on the projects (although it often is), but more it's the work around that. The organising stuff, and communication.

It feels like it's all just being lost to the wind, and the history is going to be very hard to read.


@samwilson usually it is due the lack of education or convenience

@barefootstache yes, abosolutely! It's the convenience thing that rankles most I think. And I know I shouldn't complain like this — mostly I'm fairly embracing of the corporate way of things. And I don't mean to blame any Wikimedians of course.
