While I was out in the bush near Krueger national park in South Africa recently I found a great use for Live Mesh... After a full day of seeing some excellent big game I had a ton of photos to show for my effort.
Later that night, back in the lodge, I was briefly able to get on the spotty, very low bandwidth wireless network to work for me. So I shared my pictures using live mesh and immediately shared getting a cloud hosted backup of my precious photos. As they were uploading I was thinking about how much I wanted to share this experience with my wife and kids who where half a world away and fast asleep.
It was exactly like I was sitting at the keyboard of our kitchen laptop. Even over the very bad network, I was quickly able to change her screen saver to point to the new live mesh folder with my great pictures.
When they got up that morning, my five year old son was the first to notice pictures of giraffes and lions on the kitchen laptop! The magic of shared experiences through live mesh!
Throughout the trip whenever I was able to get a little network connectivity a few more pictures would get uploaded and by the time I got the MS office in Johannesburg my family had a full copy of my adventures.
