Simple Private Exchange - drop.io

Ever wanted to post something online - to share it, solicit feedback - with just a select few friends or colleagues? Well, drop.io is a cool, easy to use site that does that. But the cool part is that you can remain anonymous - there's no registration process. And the user interface is a calm respite from all those flashy, busy websites out there. So you can create this private space online (aka "a drop") and no one will know about it unless you tell them where it is. That's because the site isn't indexed by drop.io or by the search engines. And your private space can also be password protected. They handle all sorts of media types and have cool ways for you to get your files uploaded. For instance, there's a telephone number for every drop. Call the number, speak your peace, and the next thing you know, there's an MP3 file on the site. Or fax a document to a special number and the doc will appear on the drop as a PDF file.

Drop.io was nominated for an award as one of 5 companies in the South By Southwest Tech Achievement category. They're also a featured speaker at the Facebook "conference within a conference" at SXSW.
