Jason Fried is the founder of 37signals, an influential Chicago-based web application design firm. 37signals' BASECAMP (web-based project management), BACKPACK (web-based personal information management), and TA-DA LIST (web-based to-do lists) products are used on a daily basis by tens of thousands of people and small businesses in over 50 countries.

The Wall Street Journal's Jeremy Wagstaff said 37signals' products are "Beautifully simple, elegant, and intuitive tools that make an Outlook screen look like the equivalent of a software torture chamber."

37signals' believes that software should do less, not more. Software should let people solve their own problems their own way and then get out of their way. Simpler, faster, more focused web-based products are where it's at and 37signals is leading the revolution.

37signals' agile "Getting Real" methods are also changing the way people design, engineer, and build businesses on the web. Ruby on Rails, the open-source web-application framework developed by 37signals, is powering many Web 2.0 products including all of 37signals' products, ODEO, 43things, among many others launching soon. Stay tuned.
