DBX Keynote

My college roommate Eric sent me a link to Drew Houston’s keynote presentation from the inaugural Dropbox developer conference (DBX). While I’m a little sad I didn’t get to attend (*ahem* friends who work at Dropbox who didn’t invite me), I was very pleased to find that some of the major themes of the keynote were very much aligned with some of the things I’ve blogged about recently: mainly, putting together a web file system and creating better synchronized application experiences. While I still have questions about the details on the feasibility of the merge-less syncing back-end they were promising, I hope app developers everywhere pay attention: while DBX might not have gotten as much attention as Google I/O or WWDC, what Dropbox announced is equally important in terms of building the types of services that users will want.
