    I think I agree with you. If I weren't lazy, I'd hunt down the link about why the concept of "sync" is dumb. Why do we have save/sync everything all the time? Should it just be safe, in sync.

    I've been working with a startup for a few months (my first job like this) when it hit me, "I'm not backing up anything on my work laptop." One of my co-workers pointed out that there was no need: all our code was on Github, all our files were on Dropbox, and even every app I use every day could be quickly downloaded and installed (Adobe Creative Cloud included).

    So happy not to have to be concerned about backup anymore.
