(This is my first blog post)

Nice first post! Keep up your motivation to write; you will be well-served.


As well as the fact that once enough of your classmates have Dropbox, its collaboration features and shared folders will really shine. Once you've worked on a group project without having to email files back and forth, you never want to go back.

Actually after the Space Race I canceled my paid subscription because +8GB will make the free subscription enough for me. I wonder how many other people did the same?

I hadn't really thought about this as an option, but I think it's an interesting thing to point out. My hunch is that not many college students actually pay for Dropbox's service as it stands, though. Not to mention, the main-main goal is probably user acquisition which this should definitely aid in.

if you use MS skydrive you get 7gb free?

no selective sync but i hear it is coming.. i signed up before when you got 25gb free..
