    This isn't a quick response to Box (although I can see that it looks like it). This is actually the integration of Hackpad with Dropbox (following their acquisition).

    I've been using a beta for a few months and, whilst not yet fully-featured, its shaping up to be a nice product.

    The strategy is pretty obvious: Dropbox is a place to back-up and access files. It needs to become a place to create them (because we definitely won't be doing that locally for too much longer).

    I've taken out job ads here twice before and not had a single response.

    On the other hand, I've posted in this (monthly) thread before and had loads of amazing people get in touch.

    Unfortunately, this converts better!
