That's an interesting take. How would one go about using Dropbox for
revision control? I have an account softlinked to my writing directories,
comes in handy for snagging files when I'm without my laptop.
I think there might be a cultural divide here. Many developers don't
understand how writers write and many writers don't know anything about
development. There is an overlap, however, and within that you have folks
like Cory Doctorow, and Scott Chacon, it's amazing how many people use geek
tools to make poetry and novels and things.
(Way off topic here, sorry…The best writers I know are on the tech side. Tim
Bray for instance, blows me away with his thoughtful, clear, and inciting
writing—everyone should read ongoing <http://www.tbray.org/ongoing/>.)
