With people having the expectation of chat to be instantly replied, like a chat in a real life (someone walking to your desk and saying something) it is not asynchronous in any way.

You seem to suggest people have that expectation, but I think it might be very culture specific. Where I come, people will not freak out if it takes you a day to respond to an SMS.

SMS is NOT chat.

That's also culture-specific.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
