Dropbox is the computer
By Dave Winer on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 at 10:57 AM.

A housekeeping/philosophical mini-post. #

The housekeeping part -- I am using Dropbox again. I've narrowed my use to keep personal stuff out of there.  #

I deleted my account in July. #

The philosophical part -- We used to say the network is the computer, but I'm seeing more and more that Dropbox is the computer. Once some data is availble in my dropbox, the question of which computer does what is entirely fungible.  #

Just shows there's more to the story. It wasn't all set when email was invented. :-) #
