Creo Tokens

By Deane Barker on October 24, 2003

Creo Tokens – Creo: Found this via Joel Spolsky who explains it a little better than this marketing copy.

“A Token is like a shortcut or alias that you can send via e-mail or instant message. With just one click you can create a token, and no matter how large the files you want to send are, the token representing them will be very small — just a few KB. Anyone you send a token to can then download the free Creo Token Redeemer software, and with one click redeem the token and download the files. It works for anything — a single file, an entire folder, a huge movie. It’s simple!”

I installed it, and while it seems cool, I don’t have any tokens to redeem. Someone send me one.

  1. Tokens is cool, but how is it different from FileCourier (www.filecourier.com)? It looks like it has the same core functionality and approach. Except that the receiver of their “FileTicket” doesn’t need any software at all other than a browser. Lets hope that this is just CREO’s first step in a master plan to give FileCourier a bit of competition…. lets see some sparks!
