Hey everyone, co-creator of Trunk here. Thanks for all the votes so far! We were stitching together a wedding video for a friend, and realized how troublesome it was to collect disparate bits of digital content from a bunch of people. Existing products are optimized for syncing or sharing, and usually require you to already have an account. So we created Trunk, and it had to be simple - not even a sign up flow made the cut. As you can tell, this is our MVP. There are a couple of directions we'd love to take Trunk, but at the moment, we just want to hear your honest, brutal feedback. Thanks a lot!

@alexvinogradov4 Good question, it comes up pretty often. Transferring files that • feature child pornography; • promote racism, violence or hatred; • are false or misleading; • You don’t have the right to copy and/or transfer; • infringe on intellectual property rights; • violates privacy rights, including data protection rights; • infringe on or violate any applicable law or regulation. are specifically against our terms. You can read more at https://trunked.me/terms. We simply aren't aiming for that demographic. We are DMCA compliant and if we know of any Trunks that violate our terms, we will remove it.

@zaizhuang @derrickko Neat stuff guys, couple questions: 1) Have you guys thought about creating a chrome/browser extension for this? Seems that would be most intuitive, i.e. generating and sharing unique links. The recieving party could be notified of all the content shared and download a zip? 2) Its good to see you guys are handling DMCA issues, curious to know how you guys plan to track all the shared content if it gets wildly popular.

@raj_ventures Awesome thoughts. 1) Short answer: no we haven't thought about doing browser extension yet, at least not for this MVP. The reason is that Trunk is about optimizing the collection of files (eg. for a wedding video) and a web application (not extension) allows anyone with *any* browser to upload/download files. Although I can imagine that one day down the line we will have an API that allows any developer to create a browser extension for Trunk :). 2) Not sure what you mean by "track all the shared content". Care to elaborate?

@zaizhuang @raj_ventures Ah awesome, good point. As for 'track all the shared content' - what I mean to say is - If users share a common link with each other to upload content to, what stops them from uploading and distributing illegal content and sharing it. Is there a team that overlooks what content is being shared i.e. large movie files, mp3 tracks, etc.)?

@raj_ventures I hate to say this but I can't give you an answer now as this is still in the basic MVP stage. Hopefully I'll be able to do so soon!
