My friend Deborah Swallow (@deborahswallow) turned me onto a great new tool called Dropbox, that I’m loving already. Saves me constantly backing up important documents to a memory stick, means I can access any doc from any of my computers, and it will sync any changes. It already came in handy for me this morning: as I was putting finishing touches on a paper that is on deadline today, Word crashed and wouldn’t let me back in. Because I’d already placed the doc in my Dropbox, I was able to open up another computer, access it, and make the changes needed. Now back on my usual laptop, the changes made on the other computer are already sync’d up, so I don’t have to worry about multiple versions. If you want to give it a try (it’s free), follow this link.
