    I actually had to dust off my Dropbox account to give this a try. I would have liked to see a Google Drive or Box.net option as well. This would have made this a really kick ass demo and not just an awesome one.

    I encountered some bugs, but it ultimately did work as advertised. The design is incomplete, but I'm impressed. Good work!

    It's hard to test, but from the pitch video, looks like it's a great start to a simpler non-google way of collaborative document editing backed by dropbox.
