Basecamp Released

Basecamp: Web-based Project Management, Client Extranet, Project Site System: 39signals has finally released their online project management system. This has been in the works for years, it seems.

I got an initial invite and set up a demo account. It seems competent, and the user interface is very well done. I don’t see, however, that they’re really broken any new ground in project management. I’m not sure if there’s much ground to break.
