Transparency and Work Flow

I first want to apologize for the light posting as of late.  I went on vacation last week and officially unplugged from the digital world, besides an email teaser here and there, and it was quite liberating.

We in the Swiftpage marketing department have been using a wiki and forum, both provided by wikidot, to establish an open platform for out of the box ideas across all of our channels as well as company departments.  It has helped us tremendously with creativity as I am often sparked with a seemingly brilliant idea in the wee hours of the morning and can simply post on the forum rather than send an email to everyone and possibly leave someone out.  The forum model works well for us as it provides a transparent view into each person’s thoughts and how they were augmented by thoughts prior.  And the wiki is a good bulletin board of sorts for industry trends and link sharing.

I have used Basecamp in the past and it worked well for file sharing and project collaboration.  But for strictly brainstorming in an open environment, the forum has been great for our team.  What types of work flow platforms do you use?
