Maybe I’m supposed to be neutral or unbiased or something when I share websites, applications, blogs, and gewgaws; but some start-ups appeal to me more than others. Take docstoc for example. This little company from the West Coast has implemented the kind of document-exchange ideas I was talking about in posts like this. So far they’ve done a hell of a job, becoming the virtual Energizer Bunny® of document exchange sites: they get funded, add features, get more funding, add more features, and so on. Still and all, it is by no means clear that docstoc will be able to overtake general-application early entrants such as google docs and scribd, more specialized document exchange sites such as jd supra, or newer competitors such as acrobat.com (which is cool as hell, I must say).
But true to form, docstoc continues to battle back – this time with a nifty idea called OneClick. In the words of the company, Oneclick allows you to upload document(s) by right clicking on files from your desktop and e-mailing large documents (up to 50 MBs) without having to use attachments.
Of course the question is not good intentions but execution. Granted, I’ve had more than my share of trouble using the docstoc site, but I’ve tried OneClick and so-far-sogood.
