This is one of those things that I might add to a Friday FIVE, but I’m not to going to save it, because it’s been on my mind …
I absolutely LOVE listening to the lectures sponsored by the Stanford Technology Ventures Program because I learn from the smartest and most successful entrepreneurs on the planet, from the comfort of my iPhone! As I cleaned and painted last Saturday, I listened to Drew Houston, co-founder of Dropbox. I could listen to start-up stories all day!
Anyway, as I was listening, I realized how much I really do LOVE the little blue box that sits atop my computer screens. For example, I keep all of my current and recent content for my Twelve class in Dropbox, so that I can access it from any computer–even when I was at my sister’s house. My blog folders are Dropbox folders. When my Mom and I were working on a special scrapbook about my grandfather’s life, I set up a shared Dropbox folder for us to keep our stories and photos in. When I served as our stake’s young womens president, I set us up with Dropbox so I could communicate with my counselors and secretary and nine ward presidents. I even have the iPhone app, that allows me to review files on my phone.
Of course, after listening to the Dropbox story, I’m even MORE enthusiastic and loyal than I was before (power of story!) Dropbox is continually iterating their user experience and adding helpful features — so, if you don’t already have it, you should totally get it.
If you’re not convinced, watch the video …
And then, by all means, share your Dropbox LOVE in the comments.
And, have a great and productive Wednesday!
