Announcing Candor

A new standard for team communication and knowledge sharing

  • With different timezones and working hours, our collaboration will be less real-time and more asynchronous.
  • Writing things up vs. chatting it down. Important discussions start and end with an exchange of complete thoughts, not one-line-at-a-time messages.
  • Company-wide transparency on decisions and knowledge
  • Document-based tools serve the use case of one author communicating to many readers. Comments feel like a second-class citizen. It’s difficult to have a thoughtful interchange in comment threads.
  • Group messaging apps are good for “rapid-fire” quick discussions and bad for big-picture discussions. Many topics get jumbled together in a channel, making it nearly impossible to keep track of a full conversation.
  • Discussions, documents, and team knowledge get scattered and locked in app silos.
