Gather around the Campfire

Grown tired of the ancient ICQ web client but doesn’t have the time or need to setup a Sharepoint server? Have a look at the brand new Campfire tool. The ever cool 37signals has released another great tool along the lines of Basecamp and Backpack.

Simply speaking, it’s like a group chat for business. Being a slick web client, is is used directly in your browser (unless you still use IE 5.x) with cool technology such as Ajax and Ruby.

On the other hand, Google integrated chat into GMail a week ago. Pick one.
