Jason Fried of Basecamp

[Site update: Human.Social is now Streaming.Lawyer]

Jason Fried is the co-founder and president of Basecamp (formally 37signals), a Chicago-based company that builds web-based productivity tools that, in their words, “do less than the competition — intentionally.” The company’s simple but powerful collaboration tools include Basecamp, Highrise, Backpack, Campfire, Ta-da List, and Writeboard.

Fried is the co-author, with David Heinemeier Hansson, of the book Rework, about new ways to conceptualize working and creating. Salon’s Scott Rosenberg called it “a minimalist manifesto that’s profoundly practical. In a world where we all keep getting asked to do more with less, the authors show us how to do less and create more.”

“Facebook and Twitter aren’t the real problems in the office. The real problems are what I like to call the M&Ms, the Managers and the Meetings”— Jason Fried
