The economic forecast for the computer cloud industry calls for rain. Except over the Dropbox application, where it will continue to be sunny and pleasant!

dropbox logoToday’s blog is about Dropbox, a retail application that shines in a very cloudy space in the world of the Internet.

Many people probably don’t know why Dropbox is the winning application to solve hard drive and syncing needs for more users than … (I don’t actually know this, but you can look it up if you want; this is a “do your own research” piece).

Diamond Rare (A Poem)

A Poem Banner

A ball of dirt
Spins in the air
I held two diamonds
A perfect pair

One of them dropped
Into the sand
The sand turned to glass
The glass turned to air

I lost my sense
Of distance and time
Blinded I’d wait
And let time unwind

Because when you find
The wind at your back
The sun in your face
And a friend by your side

Feet to the sand
Eyes to the sky
You’re living right
It’s not all a big lie

Diamond fall
Diamond rare
Spin one more time
I know it’s still there

Friendships
Don’t disappear
Or nothing is real
Be patient my dear
