Lifehack points to a web-based application called Writeboard that might be a better way of writing collaboratively than any of the tools we’ve considered so far–wiki, blackboard forum or sending multiple word documents among 7-8 recipients. This another lightweight application from 37Signals which produces the BaseCamp project management system and Backpack list manager. 37Signals is dedicated to producing highly focused software to perform very specific tasks with a minimum of fuss and bother. For example, Backpack is described as “a wiki without the wacky”, and one customer refered to BaseCamp as “the iPod of project management.”
Some have called Backpack “a wiki with out the wacky.” Others have called it “blogish.” Others have said it’s a project management tool for all the little things in your life. Some say it’s a application that helps you get things done. Some have called it Basecamp’s little brother. Call it what you will. We call it useful and hope you do too.
Both Writeboard and BaseCamp might be worth a look as tools to help us in our project management.
