537861-1362954-thumbnail.jpgJust came across Dropio. A drop is a ‘discrete’ chunk of space you can use to store and share stuff (pictures, video, audio, docs, etc) privately, without accounts, personal registration, or an email addresses. Drops are not ‘searchable’ and not ‘networked’, they just exist floating in space, as points for exchange for individuals or groups.

really worth a peep.

You can create as many as you want in what seems like a ridiculously easy 1-step process. Things like a password, whether others can add to the drop, and how long you want it to exist all make this thing really flexible for both family and business public and private situations. The Drops are a simple platform for sharing which are by default private, but can be flexibly used in a range of ways from sharing family photos and videos to collaborating on work documents. Each drop has three primary input methods – the web, email, and voice – and a few secondary ones like ‘widgets’.

I’ve noted up there that each drop gets its own dedicated email address (for input) phone conference # and its own fax #. You can Fax documents right into the Drop feed! This thing is a huge innovation (and seems like an amazing extranet tool…) I bet a zillion bucks it blows up at SXSW this year…
