The Dropbox Poets Society - Part 2


Published on July 11, 2009

We here at Dropbox have always had a fondness for great code, great food, but also for great poetry.  Continuing a tradition that began with our Linux haikus, we recently held a giveaway for several lifetime Dropbox accounts but with a catch-- we'd award bonus points to the entries that were written in limerick form (If you don't know what a limerick is, check this out).  And now, a year later (to the date!), we're honored to once again show you the poetic prowess of our userbase:



With Dropbox your files are near. Wherever you travel, they’re here. From Woodstock to Lompoc Perhaps Vladivostok, Just log on—and flash—they appear! - Stefan W


When you find that your files are no more, you can pick up your jaw off the floor. With your DropBox account, there's no tape drive to mount. Simply login, download, and restore. - Jordan P


There once was a young lad named Nick, who needed syncing that was easy and quick. He got Dropbox running, the results were quite stunning thanks to the powerful Web tools, cross-platform support, intuitive user interface, generous free account space, supportive forums, easy sharing features and more that the application offered, making it the only online syncing tool to pick. - David N


There was once a poor dissertator Who quaked about losing her papers She installed KDE Using Dropbox indeed Now lightning and storms do not scare her - Sarah D


Von Tag zu Tag noch besser, im Interface immer kesser, weltweit herrscht kein Disput, Dropbox du bist einfach gut! darum liebe Programmierer, weiter so - nur Mut! - Luke R


踏网而歌意匆匆, 险似刀尖丛里行。 未雨绸缪寻妙计, 仙囊缘来在盒中。 应手文档策安全, 随心同步疾如风。 冷看他人惶急色, - Xia X


When I travel to London or Rome, I shut down my desktop at home. When in need of a file, I full heartedly smile and open my dropbox in Chrome.

All the pictures I take while I am away, are instantly shared in the same simple way: in my dropbox they’re dropped and then instantly upped to my sister in Paris, who uses IE.

Meanwhile, my dad in Quebec, is also able to track which places I see even though, unlike me, he uses dropbox on a Mac.

So I guess it’s easy to see why dropbox is essential to me: it’s flickr and youtube and iTunes combined but only for people with whom I’m entwined, and all that without any fee. - Marleen Z

Once again, a huge thanks to all our users for participating!  You can view more awesome limericks at the giveaway thread.  Have a great weekend!
