Perfect, now we can all get a free trial and steal all their good ideas.

one thing i noticed immediately was that it "felt" a lot like Typepad. i wonder if it was designed by the same folks.

Of course, it's not the idea, it's the execution.

Exactly, it's in the execution. Plenty of good ideas die because the people who implement them don't get it. I trust 37s to get it.

A smart design and interface, but the features are somewhat lacking -- this is more or less weblog software with to-do list and "milestone" features attached. There's nothing that really sets up any sort of real project schedule, nor anything that helps with billing etc. Good, but not sure if it's worth the $20 per month fee.

I actually emailed the folks at Basecamp a host of other useful "would-like-to-see" items, they seem pretty receptive. It is my understanding that they are taking suggestions and will be implementing those features that have a greater appeal. I'm very interested in how robust the app will become because if my IT group doesn't have to build our own or pay an insane amount of money for something similar, it's all good.
