Three Column Holy Grail by Matthew Levine

Three columns. One fixed-width sidebar for your navigation, another for, say, your Google Ads or your Flickr photos—and, as in a fancy truffle, a liquid center for the real substance. Its wide applicability in this golden age of blogging, along with its considerable difficulty, is what has earned the layout the title of Holy Grail.

We’ve been in business for 10 years. We started as a web design firm and transitioned into a web-based software company in 2005.

From Wikipedia:

37signals designed Meetup.com and redesigned sites for customers such as Panera Bread and Shopping.com. In 2000, they created the eNormicom website, a satire of the dot-com era. In 2003, 37signals launched a web design service called 37express, where for a set fee ($2500) they would redesign one page on a website in one week.

Also in 2003, 37signals began work on a web application for project management named Basecamp, originally intended for internal use, which took the company in a new direction. Basecamp has since been followed by five other web applications. See the products section below for more details.

By 2005, the company had moved away from consulting work to focus exclusively on its web applications. Each application had a free limited-feature version, and most had monthly subscription levels with more features. The Ruby on Rails web application framework was extracted from the work on Basecamp and released as open source (see Ruby on Rails section below).

On July 20, 2006, the company announced that Jeff Bezos had acquired a minority stake through his personal investment company, Bezos Expeditions.

The phrase five by five is an old-school term defined as a signal that has excellent strength and perfect clarity – the most understandable signal possible.

The studio was founded in 2009 by Dan Benjamin to centralize, produce, and distribute the podcasts he and his friends were creating.

This site is powered by a custom Ruby on Rails CMS created by Dan Benjamin with help from Jason Seifer. It was built specifically for delivering 5by5 podcasts and videocasts.
