Everything you ever wanted to know about: Dropbox

Posted on 2 Jun ’11

Similar to my post on Angry Birds and others on startups, I continue my enthusiasm for startup companies that have been very successful, but have also filled a large functional gap. Today I am looking at Dropbox.com.

Dropbox is a “free” (that’s right you get your first 2GB for free) online storage service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily. Dropbox was founded in 2007 by Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi, two MIT students, who no longer wanted to share files by email, which many of us still do today. The startup itself was mentored through the YCombinator program.

When I started using Dropbox, I was very sceptical, but I am completely reliant on it now. For example, I use it to keep all the material for my blog and various posts, and I have it installed everywhere (mac, pc, laptop, mobile etc) for easy access. I am sure it works wonderfully if used in a team collaboration context also.

I know you will have already used or will be using Dropbox soon, so here is all the interesting articles on Dropbox that are worth checking out if you want to know more about the startup itself:

As I come across more, I will try to keep this post updated. However feel free to add your own interesting articles through the comments below.
