eSnips provides users with a centralized place to store, share and publish collections of files related to their areas of interests, causes or passions. Because collections of files usually take more space than html text, we provide a significant amount of free storage space (currently 1GB).
We've recently been mentioned in notable blogs such as Techcrunch and Mashable as part of the online storage gang. Online storage is generally picking momentum and it's great. There is a lot of potential in this space and many angles. But are we an online storage company? Well, we offer 1GB of free storage space, and that has value by itself, but storage is only a small part of our offering and vision.
We want to help people handle their dynamic / 'live' content; the part that is central to what they do at a given point in time, the things they care about and want to share. We don't want to be an online drive for users to store or backup their computers or files. The value we want to create for the user and the online community is in the content itself and the social aspects. Our upcoming version focuses on these key elements.
We are all really excited about this upcoming launch (scheduled for the first week of March). We are not sure if we'll provide limited access to the beta during the first few weeks or have it totally open. I'll try to post about it in advance.
