Cloud App

Oh man it has been a long time since I have updated this blog. So what's new?

I have a new son!
The band I am playing in recently played a gig at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood. We're playing at The Cat Club in Hollywood this Thur come one come all, promotion, promotion, promotion and all that :)

So between playing bass and changing countless diapers I have found my free time has been severely limited. Right now I am into anything that lets me get things done simply and quickly.

I recently found a new application for storing and sharing files online called CloudApp. I'll let their site explain themselves, but basically it is a simple web front end that lets you quickly upload files to Amazon's S3 cloud storage. And it's free!

Now I can record my band's live shows, practices, etc and share them with all the band members online in seconds. It even automatically creates a shortened URL. And if you use Mac, there is a desktop app that makes uploading and sharing files crazy simple.

I quickly skimmed their TOS and I didn't see anything in there about encryption, privacy, etc so I wouldn't use it to pass data sets that contain social security numbers or any other sensitive information. But it is still dead handy for all the other large data sets you've been working on...
