Office and box.net - very cool!!

How can kids get their work to and from school? That's been a big issue since the days of the 5 1/4" floppies. Now, some schools even block the use of usb drives so the problem continues.

Until now. (Does that sound like a Ted introduction?) :-)

Box.net has announced that it has made a free add-in for Office that will integrate directly to box.net. Once you install the free add-in a special "Save to box.net" option will appear in the add-ins section. Well... here is what the email release from box.net says about it:

Save files from Microsoft Office to Box
In other news, Microsoft Office is now Box Enabled! We've released a plug-in for Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Publisher that conveniently uploads any document you're editing to Box. Once the software has been installed, a "Save to Box.net" link will appear in the "Add-Ins" section. Clicking on this button will save your file to Box, making it easy to access from anywhere, share with anyone, or keep safe for later.

Download the first version of it here: http://www.box.net/shared/m0jjh7n610
Very cool, eh?

Sounds like a neat site. Too bad my school blocks it. I'll have to check it out at home.
