Backpack makes the Wall Street Journal today 26 May 2005

17 comments Latest by hrthrthrt

If you get the paper, check the front page sidebar [highlighting mine] of the Marketplace section, otherwise read Net-Based To-Do Lists Permit Collaboration By Family, Colleagues online. Basecamp and Ta-da List are also mentioned (as are productivity sites Lifehacker, 43 Folders, and newcomer To-Done). A special thanks to Thomas Weber for including us in the article.

Last week Backpack was also written up by Jeremy Wagstaff in the Wall Street Journal Online Edition. Setting your Online Agenda covers the reminders-side of Backpack while today’s article by Tom Weber covers the to-do list side of Backpack.

Congratulations! That is huge. Front page WSJ. Well done.

Just noticed it’s front page Marketplace section, not front page. Nonetheless, great job.

It’s great when a smaller company gets well-deserved recognition for superior products.

Well done, and many happy returns.

Thanks Kevin (and everyone)!

Very nice. Good job with the obligatory-yet-completely-unneccessary tilt of the shot that makes everything but the title completely illegible.

Yeah! Well deserved. Happy people.

Congratulations, of course, but of particular interest to those of us seeking similar recognition for our products is just how you managed to pull this off (besides creating create products worthy of such attention).

How? How? How?

Just read about B.C. in Business 2.0 Some guy uses it to coordinate toy designs with overseas factories.
