Dropbox, the online storage company that many people think will file for an initial public offering, has hit a member milestone. It has 100 million users.
The firm describes itself as “a free service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them.” Nothing is free forever. Dropbox accounts used to store unusually large amounts of data require payment of a fee.
Five years pass more quickly than you’d think!
Once upon a time, Dropbox had its humble beginnings in a Boston train station when I forgot my USB stick at home. We’re still unsure if it was fate or fluke, but one thing’s stayed the same all these years: each of us has a unique reason for using Dropbox.
100 million reasons later, we’re still building and improving Dropbox not only for ourselves, but also for all of you and your awesome stories that continue to inspire us.
