Please note that I've added Huddle Workspaces to the site, which I hope will prove useful for the volunteer teams working on various ArduPilot projects. I'll be PMing those who responded to our call for volunteers and giving directions and assignments in the next day or two, but in the meantime, what do you think of Huddle? Is it appropriate for our purposes? (It seemed the best of the available Ning apps, but I don't know much about workspace software and haven't used Huddle before). Let me know if it looks good or not, and I can then get us going.

I have been using it with some friends for about 3 months now and we actually always seem to end up using google docs when we do anything.

The google collaborative thing is not far away now, I guess that will become the default standard.

The white board on huddle was especially disappointing, maybe its changed and improved I will have another look now.

But I see everybody leaping to sign up! Huddle will be pleased ;-)

I've turned off the workspace notifications in latest activity. Google Docs is also offered as a Ning app, but I was concerned that it didn't have enough communications features for full project management. It's really oriented around docs, and we'll be working on code, Eagle files and task lists.

David,

The purpose of "workspaces", as I understand them, is to be able to do both in the same context. But I agree that each project should have a vision, which will be my responsibility to initiate (but then quickly turn over to the relevant teams to develop).

Chris, is this the upcoming Google Collaboration you referred to?

Wave looks great, but I don't think it's integrated into Ning yet as an app. We can migrate later if that makes sense.

I think the snag with Huddle is it works really well if you pay for all the bolt ons, I see they have just started mentioning conference calls, I'm guessing Google waves will have that out the box, have the Whitehouse not been using it for a while?

There is a company out there called Central Desktop that has a pretty good collaboration environment - not a total freebie, but pretty cheap.

I was disappointed yesterday at what seemed to be a viral spread of the app...meaning I was unable to opt out, and it seemed that pure curriosity was driving most of the "sign-ups".
