So my tech spiel for this month is a little self serving, and was inspired by a Lifehacker article. I want to talk to you a bit about Dropbox, and make no mistake my aim is to persuade you to sign up for a Dropbox account via my referral link. So what is this Dropbox of a thing?
Dropbox is a free online file sharing and backup solution. With the Dropbox application, you can sync files between all your computers and phones. With public and shared folders, not only can you keep and work on your own files, you can collaborate with others on files you share, or just simply make them public so that anyone can see them.
Like a version control system, Dropbox also keeps a history of your work. This allows you to undo changes and undelete files. So with Dropbox you can you edit your files anyhow, access them anywhere, and share them everywhere. A free Dropbox account comes with a whopping 2GB of space which can be increased by up to 400% if you get other people to sign up via your referral link.
Therein lies the self-serving part. I want to increase my Dropbox space, and I want you to sign up via this link: http://db.tt/7Cq6p3g. What’s in it for you? The increase goes both ways. I get extra space and so do you. Furthermore, I already backup all editions of The Red String on Dropbox, so I can share my folder with you – giving you instant access to all the editions as soon as they are available. It’s not much, but it is something. Even if you feel you have no need for a Dropbox account, sign up anyway. If not for yourself, do it for me. Get Dropbox now!
