Collaboration tool for small groups - Kickoff

minimalmac:

Kickoff lets you collaborate with your team in an elegant way, giving you the right tools for a clutter free, real time experience both online and offline.

This looks like a nicely designed Mac native alternative to 37 Signals Campfire. It even has a couple of features not found in Campfire alone. Perhaps, for your small team or business, they these make it a better alternative and worth the price.

That said, cost wise, Campfire is a lot less expensive, works in the browser so it can work on multiple platforms, and there is at least one solid, Mac native, third party app called Propane that can fit the bill. Not to mention the few iOS apps that work with it.

That said, it does look good and warrants a mention if for nothing else than to let those in need of such tools know what the options are.

Adding depth is always good :D

That means Gotham went from a print-based library that included 7,520 individual characters (known as glyphs) to a web version that counted 47,778. That’s almost seven times as large as the original, and each one has to be carefully designed to operate at any size and a range of weight.

At the same time, the quality assurance process — testing each glyph in different circumstances to make sure it works properly — went from 74 individual tests for print through to 210 steps for the web. In total, the team at Hoefler & Frere-Jones had to commit to more than 90 million individual operations in order to make their foundry web-compatible.
