Collaboration tool: Sharing links with Dropbox

Recently, I've been exchanging documents and links with others using Dropbox for the PLSR Project. (Dropbox is an online file storage service.) It's handy to be able to upload completed documents for fellow project members to read, but we're also frequently editing draft documents together in Google Docs, and it'd be mighty annoying to have to dig through both Dropbox and Google Docs to find all our project documents. To avoid that confusion and annoyance, Dropbox lets us upload URLs—so we put the links to our Google Docs files into Dropbox, to keep everything in the same place.

The steps to share a link in Dropbox are a nifty drag-and-drop maneuver. I made a video of my own (to show you, and to help cement the steps in my own memory). Not just for Google Docs—it works for saving links to your favorite websites, too!
