It’s funny how what’s old is new again. I used to use lots of 37Signals’ products and – over time – gradually stopped. Now I’m coming back to them again.

Inspired by a recent talk that Steve Smith gave at ConvergeSE, the team I work with has incorporated Campfire more heavily into their daily development lives. How are we hoping to use it? General chat, code reviews, asset and resource sharing, cat pictures… I’m hoping it improves communication between our developers and helps to decrease some of the email overload we all suffer from.

Most of our team is Mac-based and I’ve encouraged them to use Propane for Campfire or the Campfire iPhone app but it works fine in-browser as well.
