Chalk vs. Whiteboard

November 3rd, 2010 4 Comments

The 37signals team just released an interesting iPad app that spurred some ideas in Rich’s (@rmanalan) head. More on that in the future.

Introducing Chalk: A fun little browser-based app for iPad inspired by our new office – (37signals)

What I want to know is which wins in a fight, chalk or whiteboard?

Tale of the tape

I’m giving this one to whiteboard by a small margin.

Thoughts on which you prefer, or on that Chalk app? Find the comments.

    Colored chalks are usually much prettier than dry-erase markers. Also, there’s no such thing as whiteboard paint, and you can turn any wall into a blackboard. I’d say that puts chalkboard over the edge…

    Not very serious applications :) Maybe chalkboards are for play and whiteboards are for serious business business.

    Try googling “turn wall into whiteboard”

    Can’t believe chalk didn’t get a win with all those http://www.moillusions.com/category/3d-sidewalk-drawings-optical-illusions

    Now all we need is a device that projects the ipad app onto the street. Call it trebuchet.

    Just bc chalk is used to create beautiful art, doesn’t mean chalk*boards* are better than whiteboards.
