How Dropbox Started As A Minimal Viable Product

I just read Eric Reis’ book The Lean Startup this last week. I highly recommend it for anyone thinking about how to get going on putting your ideas in motion, and how to improve the changes that your idea/product/service are doing to meet the needs of your customers. I also really enjoyed reading the current Forbes magazine cover story on Drew Houston and Dropbox – it’s a nice warm MIT story of some guys working their butt off and creating a great new company and service that I love. In this article, Eric talks a bit about his interactions with Drew, and there is the ‘Minimum Viable Product’ video that really helped to prove the concept of Dropbox was something that customers wanted.
