While I have not tried it yet, Robin Good pointed out a compelling new tool for project management and collaboration that combines webloging with a dashboard to keep track of project progress and milestones. I will look for an opportunity to use it.
Basecamp Makes Distributed Project Work An Online Pleasure To ManageThis is an ideal asynchronous collaboration tool for distributed project teams working on keeping their tasks, files, calendar and notes in great synch. The classical idea of a "project site" originally brought about by David Siegel has greatly evolved over time adjusting and flexing to accomodate the different needs of various professions and working groups. YahooGroups have been a great free resource for many needing to have a reference site in which to centralize messages, files, calendars and other information connected to a group or project. Basecamp leaps a few orders of magnitude ahead while offering a truly well designed interface, an extremely well designed organization of the different functions and all of the quite enjoyment of being a truly private, ad-free, secure working space. Basecamp is a hosted service so there's no hardware or software installation required. Basecamp is RSS-enabled out of the box. For $ 19/month, this is definitely a service to look at.
