Dropbox and Akoha, which I have been using and enjoying, have both been selected as finalists at TechCrunch50 Conference.
I wrote about Akoha about a week and a half ago after I went to their party. I’ve been trying it out since then and I’m impressed. I still can’t really say much more though.
DropBox is a dead-simple file synchronization service. There’s a small client program that runs in the background and keeps your “Dropbox” – a folder you designate, synced with other computers linked to your account. You can also share synced folders within your Dropbox with other people, making a super easy way for everyone in a team to have the latest version of everything.
I highly recommend checking out the presentations by both Akoha and DropBox this week. DropBox is tomorrow, sometime between 3:45 and 5:00 PM, (I think they’re last in the session), and Akoha is Wednesday, sometime between 10:30 and 11:45 AM, (it looks like they’re second). All times Pacific.
Whispers about “Congratulations to Dropbox & Akoha!”
Thanks for the kudos John. I’m glad you are enjoying Akoha. We still have a lot to work on while we are in playtesting, but your feedback and participation is really appreciated.
It’s fun! I’m spreading the word in San Diego right now, and am heading to BC later today.
