Box This is really interesting- Box.net’s filefeed lets people easily subscribe to your shared files through any web or software-based RSS reader (including firefox, my.yahoo, newsgater, feedster, and more). Distributing files through filefeed is easy: just add a file to one of your Box.net shared folders and all of the subscribers will instantly receive a link to that new file. Imagine the possibilities… share documents with your blog’s readers, send brochures to clients, syndicate recent photos automatically to friends and family, or simply use RSS to sync up your web folder with another location.

    The box.net filefeed does sound interesting. I do have a question about this
    though, what If I need to share these files only with a selective audience? I
    don’t know if this solution will let you do that as it says that all subscribers
    will receive the files. I have been using online storage from IBackup all these days and it lets me add recipients of my choice
    for shared files.
