Writeboard Hello, We launched Writeboard back in October of 2005 as a stand-alone service. A few years later we integrated Writeboards into Basecamp Classic and Backpack. Today, the vast majority of Writeboards are created inside those two products. As part of refocusing on Basecamp, we’ve decided to retire Writeboard.com. But don’t worry — any Writeboards you already created here at Writeboard.com will continue to work. Thanks to everyone who used Writeboard.com over the years.

Meet Echograph, the Instagram of Animated GIFs | Wired Design You’ve been warned: You’ll soon see images like the ones in this post — part moving, part still — everywhere. Animated GIFs are making a comeback, and Echograph, a new iPad app, is taking them to the next level. Remember how the newspaper photos in the Harry Potter movies came alive? That’s what this app brings to the Muggle world, for $2.99. Here’s how it works: You shoot a video, select a five-second clip, and choose one still as the main frame. Next, use your finger to erase part of the image. Echograph is the creation of Nick Alt, founder and CEO of Clear Media, a Southern California-based 10-person creative agency that does work for Mattel, Chik-Fil-A, and Macy’s while also developing their own products. Alt’s team actively uses a variety of photo-sharing services like Facebook and Instagram, but wanted something more. With this tool, photographers can instantly download a shot from a high-definition camera, make an Echograph, and if it doesn’t work, immediately reshoot it.
