Shall We Gather @ the Campfire

37SignalsI’m a daily user of 37Signals “simple software” packages Backpack and Basecamp. The company is one of my favorite developers, as I’ve commented elsewhere. They’ve just launched Campfire, a secure group chat software that requires nothing other than access to the net and a web browser (IE6, Firefox or Safari only).


Campfire allows you to quickly create individual chatrooms that are permanent – with their own permanent url. You can browse previous chats – or do a search on them. Check out Campfire here and sign up for a 30 day trial.

And drop me a note if you want to have a chat.

UPDATE: Stowe Boyd has an interesting take on Campfire – positive with qualifications.

  1. I’m going to be doing a “fund-drive” to see if I can finance an e-Church Campfire chat for a few months to test it out.

    My wife is a marriage and family therapist–we are looking into this application as a way for her to do therapy “at home” instead of having to set up an actually office. 37 signals is onto something here…
