Essential tools for the worldwide office

If you're collaborating with a large team Lifehacker has listed a number of tools that will help your team accomplish its goals and tasks quickly and effeciently.
Brian and I have pretty much set up a 24/7 radio station online with MSN messenger, e-mail and VNC Server/Viewer and other than initial setup, I don't think either of us have stepped into the office that the station is run out of in Fort Worth.
It's all technology folks. Amazing technology.
But for your team, here are some other great tools (several of which I've used) to help your team work effeciently.
  • Group chat meetings - Campfire
  • Internal knowledgebase - MediaWiki
  • E-mail - Gmail
  • Vacation and other scheduling - Google Calendar
  • Document collaboration - Writely, I mean, Google Docs
