Comments

BaseCamp is a great tool by 37Signals that lets small businesses and startups coordinate and get the team moving more efficiently.

There was also a mobile site that let you checkin to venues and join what Whrrl called societies. Societies are groups of people with similar interests and it’s this feature that makes them a clear acqhire and acquisition.
