Elephant Post Question: What Collaboration Tools Do You Use?

Let me shake your hand

At any given moment, I may have one, two, three, four, or more collaboration tools at my disposal that allows me to nearly instantaneously communicate with my friends, peers, co-workers, and staff. Be it the old fashion telephone (although mine has video build in… 'cause I'm special like that), or email, or Instant Messaging, or Twitter, or Facebook, or even getting up off my duff an walking next door to actually verbally communicate face-to-face, there are tons of ways to communicate.

I'm kind of a big fan of the Private Facebook Groups, and the flexibility that it gives me to send out actual business related questions to a set of peers, or to send out classic viral cat videos to the same group. It can be formal, but it tends to be very informal. It is extremely convenient, and we really hope that it remains behind a privacy fence (although, I think we unofficially know not to say anything that would get us into too much trouble if that fence were to fall down.)

So this week's Elephant Post question is this:
What Collaboration Tools Do You Use?
Tell us about some of the interesting resources you use, including any non-traditional tools, or maybe some resources that are so old-fashioned, they are actually new again!! I'll pull these together and post all of the answers on Friday. Please take a moment and either fill out the embeded form below, or email me (xlambert at gmail dot com). You can see what others have answered by going here.

As a Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer, I need to collaborate with my staff... We use TRELLO because it's free and it's a simple drag-and-drop interface.

At Authority rep we use the highrise suite of products for communication. They have a lot of different uses and all of our remote workers can communicate on those projects, sales prospects and timelines. They also feature a conference call in feature.
