Most employers frown when they see their employees wasting time on Twitter or chatting on Facebook. However, what if social media could facilitate your company’s projects?

The web app offers a clean, graphically-oriented way for small teams to collaborate on projects. Subtask founder Michael Partheil says he wants it to become a more visual alternative to Basecamp.
I'm looking forward to trying this app out. I'm not a fan of having to log in with Facebook or Twitter and wish firms would always provide the opportunity to create an account, but the idea of combining project management and mind mapping is worth a close look.

Google Calendar is great for managing appointments, but that's not all it can do. The sharing, searchability, timeline view, and other features make Google Calendar a simple but powerful project management tool.
If you can't afford to pay a monthly charge for a project management software solution, and if your projects are not complicated, then you might be able to get away with using Google Calendar as a Project Managment tool.

There are some good points here, although I don't agree with number 3: Don't Make Assumptions. Everyone makes assumptions. The trick isn't not to make assumptions but to make sure everyone knows what your assumptions are so they can question them and determine if they agree with them or not. Learning to recognize your assumptions and articulating them is an important skill for the Web project manager, the team and the client.
Frank Bergmann talks to us about ]project-open[, an integrated open source software stack. He says that maintaining communication links to all the involved projects is essential, and it entails complete transparency and honesty.

Rofori Corporation, a cloud service company with a focus on providing the latest private social networking technology with modifiable user-defined message creation and file storage, to professionals and organizations, is pleased to announce its...
Using large white boards or electronic white boards to display projects and status is a topic that has come up in a few conversations I've had lately with Web Project Managers. Rofori is a interesting part of this solution as it allows Web teams to follow messages and conversations. It is cloud based so displaying these messages on monitors around the team room serves the same function (for less money) than an electronic white board and the info is up to date. Now that Dropbox integration is available teams can access files efficiently. Definitely worth checking out if you are considering this option for keeping your Web team on the same page.
Inventure-backed Froont has launched in public beta today with a web-based tool that aims to make it easy for designers to create, prototype and share responsive website designs, without the need to code.
Every design team I managed usually had the designer and the programmer at odds with each other's approach at one point or another if not all the time. Few teams realize the creative potential the two points of view can bring to the project. Helping them understand that the two approaches is a strength, and doesn't need to be a contingeous point is one of the values a Web Project Manager can bring to the team.
Froont's approach creates a situation in which the programmer's point of view is subjugated to the designer's vision. This looks like a valuable tool, but rather than having the designer alone create the vision, consider having the programmer and the designer use the tool together. Your usability and innovation will benefit.
There are plenty of available tools to help you easily manage those cloud storage services. Jack Wallen lists his favorites.
Let's face it Cloud services are here to stay. Might as well learn to get the most out of the technology. There are several services here I didn't know about. Maybe you'll find an interesting tool here too.
