The future of working together
On the inessential board in Glassboard, a user asked Brent to clarify our stance that Glassboard can be an email replacement in work settings. Here is his response:
“At Sepia Labs we’ve been using Glassboard since the first alphas of 1.0 — and we’ve found it’s a great way to work together. We hardly use email at all.
We do use some other services: Lighthouse and Google Docs, for instance. Glassboard doesn’t replace a bug-tracker, and it’s not a spreadsheet app or word processor. But it is a great way for a team to communicate.
One of the things that’s made a big difference is the web app. We’re at our desks a lot of the time, and the web app is convenient and easy.
One small example of how we use Glassboard:
Recently we needed to re-do the big graphic for the app’s page on Google Play. I posted it to our internal group. People replied. I posted another version. People replied. Etc. — until we finished. It didn’t matter if people were at their desks or not — they could all see the graphic and make comments with feedback.
We also use Glassboard to share links — like to Nick’s recent interview in the Knoxville newspaper, or to industry stories we should all know about.
We coordinate. Ask questions. Debate features. Write up our ideas. Talk strategy. Brainstorm about blog posts. Tell jokes.
I consider our use of Glassboard as an advantage we have over other teams — we work together better than any other team I’ve been a part of. It’s remarkable.
And that’s why I’ve said on my blog that I believe this is the future of working together. Because I’ve been living it, and it’s awesome.”
