Most of the time, I’m the guy who authors the show notes for the Herding Code Podcast. The workflow is relatively straight-forward: Jon shares the pre-production audio with me, I compete my write up and then ship the notes back to Jon for publishing with the edited audio. All file sharing is all done with shared folders in the Windows Live Mesh.
The director of my kid’s preschool was looking for a way to access her work computer from her home office. VPN connection? Remote desktop? FTP? Nope. I installed Windows Live Mesh in a matter of minutes, synchronized a number of folders and she was off and running. (The neat thing is she’s running a PC in the office and a Mac at home.)
I was using Dropbox before discovering Mesh. Dropbox is still very cool but I’m in and out of Mesh enough that it’s taken over. Actually I still have a Dropbox folder – it’s just being synched by Mesh now.
If you’re interested in giving Live Mesh a whirl, here’ are the notable links as found on the product’s site:
