Thanks a (hundred) million

Five years pass more quickly than you’d think!

Once upon a time, Dropbox had its humble beginnings in a Boston train station when I forgot my USB stick at home. We’re still unsure if it was fate or fluke, but one thing’s stayed the same all these years: each of us has a unique reason for using Dropbox.

100 million reasons later, we’re still building and improving Dropbox not only for ourselves, but also for all of you and your awesome stories that continue to inspire us.

Among these is Coach Stringfellow in Utah. High school football’s a big deal — while there are the lights, crowds, and cheerleaders, less visible are the sweat and tears needed to build a great team. Coach Stringfellow and his players use Dropbox to study game films and scouting reports on their own terms. And because Dropbox keeps everyone connected, the Bountiful Braves have the edge they need to play stronger and smarter.

But Coach isn’t alone. There’s an uncle in Quebec who uses Dropbox to stitch together his family’s history, and a 4th grade class in Oregon that makes music in Dropbox with other students around the world. And seeing that Dropbox will come in flavors of Italian and European Spanish, we’re more excited than ever to discover uses for Dropbox we’ve never imagined.

We’d like to hear what your Dropbox story is. We think it’s worth sharing with a growing community, now over 100 million strong. If it’s one of our hundred favorites, we’ll give you 10 GB for life. And if it’s one of our top ten favorites, we’ll give you 100 GB for life.

We love what we do and we hope you do too. Thanks for being part of the adventure — it’s just getting started.
