Is it possible to mirror or migrate Slack messages to Spectrum?

This would help us move here!
We probably wouldn't leave slack altogether though, because our Slack channel is part of a regional tech group with new members finding us there all the time. It would be great to be able to mirror the messages with some or other bot.
Does anything like that exist? If there are some open apis, then I would be interested in getting involved in creating some mirroring automation. Thinking along the lines of two users/bots called slack-bot and spectrum-bot. They can include the original messages (On the Spectrum side will obviously have to have topics clustered based on time since last reply or something). e.g. If an less than an hour since last message in channel, reply to last topic... else create new topic.
Thoughts/ideas?

Unfortunately that's not possible right now, as we don't have a public API that can accept writes. Sorry for the inconvenience :)

As a minimum, whatever chat happens over in Spectrum land can be written to Slack then
