  1. Virtually all of these features are available from Skype chat, the ability to have group chats (which can quickly be turned into a conference call), file sharing to multiple people at once, persistant chat and archives, and secure chat. Of course, some people will have issues because their IT department won’t let them install Skype at work, but my guess is that those are the kinds of enterprise people that 37Signals is targeting anyway.

    Not impressed so far. Will try to check back in a week or so, but we’re not switching from Skype as our small business chat environment if this is what we get.

So for the next time, hopefully you’ll see my name on my idea … [...]
