 Facebook cofounder Dustin Moskovitz jumped from the social network in 2009, to do his own company, Asana.

Unlike Facebook, Moskovitz decided to focus on enterprises, building a website for managing tasks.

“To a large extent, we do think we’re competing somewhat with Gmail, but more with Google Docs,” Moskowitz told us a few weeks ago. “It’s this sort of ubiquitous sharing tools that everyone uses, but they’re bad because they lack structure.”

Asana has one quirk compared to the similar sites — it emphasizes keyboard shortcuts. It’s betting that you will shave off fractions of a second in your work day each time you access the application by memorizing and using its keyboard shortcuts.

It’s not a pleasant first-time experience and takes a lot of adjustment to get used to the interface. It sparsely uses drag and drop, and it definitely isn’t pretty — it feels like it comes out of an old-school gray scale Macintosh.

We played around with it and took screengrabs to show you what it actually looks like.

Frankly, this early version is baffling.

  3. He is a very smart and young man.. with a lot of money. There isn’t really anyone competing with google-docs and I think that there can be some major improvements. Is he the one who if going to figure it out? Who knows, but it can’t hurt to try.

  4. Smart young man with lot of money to invest, surely we can expect something big from him. He already have an experience starting up a successful company and it will help him a lot.

  5. People that made facebook have really nice idea. Asana may be on the start up but for sure in the long run it will continue to improve and become known.
