Dropbox founder Drew Houston gets ready to take the stage at the grand opening.

Dropbox held an open house on Wednesday at it’s brand new headquarters in San Francisco’s China Basin. Most of the hour-long event was dedicated to talks by co-founder Drew Houston and SF Mayor Ed Lee, followed by a tour. At the end, however, Jessica Guynn of the Los Angeles Times managed to get Houston to answer a couple of brief questions about the topic on everyone’s mind: Google Drive.

Houston was running late for an overseas flight for a meeting in South Korea. When the subject was broached, his initial response was that he’d a lot more time than he had to give a proper response. Still, here’s a couple of quotes from Houston:

Q: Has he tried Google Drive?

A: “I’ve played with it a little.”

“Google been on the horizon since we founded the company.”

Q: Did it measure up?

A: “It’s hard to know what to expect from Google.”

“It’s not something we spend a lot of time thinking about.”

Houston’s only comment yesterday came on Twitter:
