More on MyOffice

I heard from the MyOffice people a couple of days ago about their Facebook-based project management system. As that post and others make clear, I am really interested in the architecture they use, which essentially allows them to provide a service while handing Facebook the work of supplying other sorts of infrastructure.

They say that they'll be working on lots of other functionality in the next few weeks. These include -- and here I'm quoting from the email --
  • "Whiteboard
  • Advanced administration (configure notifications and user roles/acces on a per-project basis)
  • Live Chat
  • File Management"
Great, and necessary moves. Their aim is to make MyOffice into "a robust project management tool." And they do have a plan for monetization beyond ads, although they're not ready to discuss it at present.

I'm considering using MyOffice for students' project management next semester -- it's currently robust enough for that -- and am interested in seeing how it matures. Check it out if you haven't.

I found your post very interesting and I strongly recommend It is completely free of charge and gathers your team under the same virtual roof. is a web-based project management solution that offers all-in-one functionalities: managing projects and tasks, time management, issue tracking system and increased team collaboration through wikis. can be used by anyone who is involved in a project; from individuals all the way up to experienced project managers. A project can be anything from a ‘study’ plan for an upcoming exam all the way to constructing an Apartment Building.
