Trello - Simple Collaboration with Cards and free
The first thing you do in Trello is to create a "board" which is simply a topic you wish to engage people on.
Next you invite people to join your board.
Once they have joined they can create cards, vote on other people cards and assign cards to people for action. When you click on a card you can see text or a list or a picture or any kind of web link.Trello runs over the web and also on smartphones and tablets.
There are so many potential uses for Trello - here are some which the developers suggest:
- Event Plannning
- Software Development
- Personal To-Dos
- Recruiting and Consulting
In terms of pricing the developers say that Trello "will be free forever but that they may add pay-only features in the future, but everything that's free today will be free tomorrow and forever."
Heres a nice short Trello video on youtube to get you started:

Bioteams Books Reviews
If you think that there is not much human teams can learn from nature think again! Temple Grandin in her amazing book Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior (p303-307) puts forward the incredible theory that early humans only became today’s successful homo sapiens because they learned to act and think like the wolves they co-habited with.
