37signalslogo011807.png37signals‘ site is down, meaning its users — mainly small organizations — are unable to access its popular set of web-based services, including project manager Basecamp, group chat Campfire and contact manager Highrise. For example, I have my list of people to contact and stories to write today within Highrise.

[Update: All 37signals services are back online, after being down for a couple of hours this morning.]

VentureBeat’s entire team was considering switching to Highrise, but this outage is a good reason not to. I’m putting the pieces of my scheduled articles together by sorting through my email. Got a hot story tip? Send it over.

Between this outage and Matt and the rest of us preparing for the Crunchies awards tonight expect lighter than normal posting today.
