re: Basecamp and Shape-Up: Real-World Experience VIEW POST


I haven't heard of shape-up before, but I've always dreaded working for clients or other agencies who use Basecamp. I know it's explicitly designed to be simple and easy to use so as not to appear intimidating to non-technical users, but... You end up locked into single posts with thousands of comments, all referring to "that thing I said up there somewhere" because it's not threaded and previous commends aren't enumerated or linkable. Workflow ends up being by email, with lots of "as I said on Basecamp" type pointed remarks and everyone ends up grumpy.


Hi there Ben! I think you talk about an important point: Basecamp is entirely another tool when coupled with the Shape Up mindset. I suggest you give it a try.
