Really liked the idea that you need context, and that all communication should happen within context and in a way that others can see. If we had a streamlined way of doing these convos, would save a lot of time.

Good write up from the Basecamp team on guidelines for team communication. Mostly asynchronous, mostly written.

Writing solidifies, chat dissolves. Substantial decisions start and end with an exchange of complete thoughts, not one-line-at-a-time jousts. If it's important, critical, or fundamental, write it up, don't chat it down. / via onfocus

Internal communication based on long-form writing, rather than a verbal tradition of meetings, speaking, and chatting, leads to a welcomed reduction in meetings, video conferences, calls, or other real-time opportunities to interrupt and be interrupted.

Speaking only helps who’s in the room, writing helps everyone. This includes people who couldn't make it, or future employees who join years from now.

Companies don't have communication problems, they have miscommunication problems. The smaller the company, group, or team, the fewer opportunities for miscommunication.

Thoughtful ideas about team communication from Basecamp. It makes sense that they're down on chat (the competition!), but I don't agree that live chat is a mind-killer.
