Basecamp is more than just a project management tool — it’s an elevated way to work. Teams that switch to Basecamp become better teams. They’re more productive and better organized. They communicate better and require fewer meetings. And they’re far more efficient than before. Being better is a choice — choose Basecamp.

Here’s how it works.


“‘別這麼說,’他結結巴巴地說道,‘您千萬別這麼說,??您什麼 也不欠我??我並不是??我只希望,我沒有把事情辦糟而是完全按照您的 意思采取行動??也許再等一等會更為有利,是啊,我自己也感覺到如果 您??如果您不是那麼著急的話,完全可以??完全可以賣個更好的價 錢??可是您希望趕快脫手——我想,這樣做對您更為有利。憑良心說,我 認為這對您更為有利。’ 想,一聲不響。她不再瘋瘋癲癲地左顧右盼,東張西望︰仿佛半小時熱忱專 注的內心搏斗已經使她的感官精疲力竭,疲憊不堪。不消說,我們也同樣態 度收斂起來。一路上寂靜無聲,漸漸使人昏昏欲睡,快到中午的時候,我們 到達養馬場。人人摸 十九人人操 經驗豐富的約拿克為我們的歸途選擇了另一條道路,為的是讓我們看看 可是意外的事情層出不窮。在這種喜慶場合總不會缺少那幫吉卜賽老太 婆,其中一個看見新娘受到如此豐厚的饋贈,不覺心動,擠到平台上來,死 乞白賴他說服艾迪特,讓她看手相算命。艾迪特顯然怕難為情。一方面她真 的非常好奇,另一方面,她羞于當那麼多人的面,讓人跟她干這騙人的把戲。 我很快想出個辦法,我輕輕地推著封?開克斯法爾伐先生和其他所有的人離 開平台,這樣誰也沒法偷听到這神秘的預言。好奇的人沒有辦法,只好哈哈 大笑地站在遠處旁觀。那老太婆跪在艾迪特面前,握著她的手仔細端詳,嘴 里胡言亂語。在匈牙利,每個人都充分了解這種老大婆耍的老一套的鬼把戲, 無非是挑最最討人喜歡的話說給人听,然後因為說出了吉利話而大發利市。 可是,使我驚訝的是,這個彎腰曲背的老太婆,用她那沙啞的嗓子,急急忙 忙地在她耳邊小聲說的話,似乎很奇怪的都使艾迪恃激動不已。她的鼻翼又 開始翁動。她每次這樣總表示出,她的內心必然處于激烈的緊張狀態。她全 神貫注地傾听,身子彎得越來越低,有時候又心驚膽戰地環顧四周,看是否 有人在旁偷听。接著她招手讓父親到她跟前去,用命令的口吻在他耳邊悄聲 說了幾句,父親像平時一樣百依百順,伸手到胸口的衣袋里,掏出幾張鈔票 塞給吉卜賽女人。這筆錢在鄉下人眼里想必是個難以估量的大數目,因為這 個貪財的老太婆仿佛被人一刀砍倒匍匐在地,像個瘋婆子似的連連吻艾迪特 的裙邊,嘴里念念有詞地嘟囔些莫名其妙的咒語,越來越急促地撫摩她的兩 只癱瘓的腳。然後一下子跳了開去,好像她害怕什麼人會把她手里的那麼多 錢重新搶走似的。人人看 “妙極了,您真準時︰我早就知道,您這人是靠得住的。咱們最好還鑽 到那個老角落去。咱們要談的事,可容不得別人旁听。”

“Previously we used a few different tools stitched together, and all information was always scattered around those tools. In Basecamp, all things have their place - when I need something, I always know where to look.”

-Rolandas Barysas, MB Canarius


Every project in Basecamp includes a schedule that displays any dated to-dos and events for that project. Everyone on the project can see it, so they’ll all know what’s coming up.

  • add events with dates, times, and date ranges
  • subscribe with Google Calendar/iCal/Outlook
  • discuss events on their own page
  • add people to notify them when things change
