From the folks at Basecamp, a guide on how/when/why they use chat/face-to-face/e-mail/… when communicating.
Below you’ll find a collection of general principles we try to keep in mind at Basecamp when communicating with teammates, within departments, across the company, and with the public.

At a first glance Feel Me appears as a text messaging application. Yet, when the two parts are both looking at the conversation they are having, touches on the screen of one side are shown on the other side as small dots.
Touching the same spot triggers a small reaction, such as a vibration or a sound, acknowledging that both parts are *there* at the same time.
