In the last two days I’ve had independent conversations about agile Project Management tools with both Nori and Bob. My first conversation was with Nori in which he demonstrated a tool he’s been using for a few weeks called Trello. The second conversation was with Bob in which he showed me a tool called Pivotal Tracker.
From what I can tell both tools have value. The Trello tool is free. It’s very free-form in what you can do from a content perspective. Trello integrates with Gmail, which is a plus and has a very cool user experience, much like a hybrid of Twitter and Facebook.

Are you going to screw me later and make me pay for something I got hooked on?
We do eventually plan to monetize the service when we have a bazillion
Pivotal Tracker is not free. It’s not all that expensive, but it does cost money. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee each day you can get 10 collaborators with unlimited viewers, projects and file storage. It ends up costing $600 a year, which is not real bad.
