Kim Dotcom is a maniac. But a smart maniac. He’s just offered every creative person on the planet 50 Gigabytes of free cloud storage!
Think about it. You’re a writer. You’ve got a thousand text/document files that maybe take up a gigabyte at worst. Lose them, and you are out of business. Yes, you can back them up. What if your house burns down taking out your computer and backup drive?
Having an additional encrypted backup on the Cloud, that is accessible anywhere, anytime, is a fantastic option. And as long as you keep under 50 Gigabytes, it’s free.
Last but not least, the interface is usable. I’ve seen file management systems that look like they were designed by Satan. This one is good. Also I’ve heard rumours of people building automatic backup systems for Mac OSX, Linux, and Windows systems…
For that matter Indie Publishers should consider it. Backup, backup, backup.
I’m signed up. Are you?
