Congratulations to Dropbox & Akoha!

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.

Akoha seems really cool

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Akoha sneak preview event here in Montréal.  I can’t say much now, but Akoha seems pretty cool, and is something I want to use.

The Akoha folks really know how to put on a party and get a group of people excited about their product.  I’m excited.

I will write more later, when I’m allowed, and have used it for a while.  For now, pay attention, and if you have the opportunity to try it out for yourself then give it a shot.
