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.
