Since we are very distributed company here at Automattic, we use lots of online collaboration tools including IRC, Skype, blogs, and wikis. The other big thing we’ve been using internally is a WordPress theme called Prologue that we developed last year.
Prologue is essentially a group twitter theme, and we’ve been hard at work updating it ( we are calling the new version P2 ) to include ajax updates, growl-like notifications, threaded comments, and a few other really clever features. It also looks great on the iPhone !
It’s available right now on WordPress.com, and will be available for self-hosted WordPress within a week or so. Definitely worth checking out.

Any idea when this will be released for the self-hosted WordPress blogs??
It’s released and available here: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/p2
So you say it works great on the iPhone? All our users complain that they cannot even see the sidebar.
There is a small flash widget in the sidebar. Could that prevent the page from displaying correctly?
@thereser — I think you are right in that the iPhone version doesn’t show the sidebar by default.
You should be able to tweak this with CSS I believe.
I don’t suppose you’d be able to give any advice about how to tweak the CSS to get the sidebar to display? I’ve only just installed the P2 theme and I was very disappointed to realise that the sidebar doesn’t show in iPhones.
It’s a little involved at the moment, but we’ll make sure the next revision of P2 gets some attention in that area.
I am trying to upload images (or any other media) to my post using P2 theme but I cannot. After I chose the file I don’t get the attach to post button, only the delete button.
I trying to run it locally and on the net adn it is the same problem in both cases. Is there a problem with the theme?
strange — is this happening on WordPress.com or self-hosted WordPress ?
I like P2 theme very much. The only thing I don’t like is the fact that after uploading the image file, it only shows the attachment file name. Is there some way I can get the image to display? I am planning to create a semi-dailybooth for my community.
