Fog Creek Software, the company that Joel built, has a new product that promises easy remote assistance between computers. You know, like Microsoft’s Remote Assistance, except without the requirement for Windows Messenger when behind a firewall. In other words, it’s supposed to be easy for anyone to use. Huzzah!
Even cooler, the product was built by Fog Creek’s team of four hand-picked interns. The entire intern program sounds really cool, involving documentary filmmakers and development blogging. The news release is pretty damn inspiring. The entire system built in just six weeks, start to finish.
