Dropbox users want Condoleezza Rice removed from the board

49 sec read

With the unveiling of new Carousel and Mailbox apps and the rolling out of Dropbox for Business, CEO Drew Houston made it clear on Wednesday that Dropbox wants to be a bigger part of your day-to-day life. But protesters are threatening to ditch Dropbox from their life completely, thanks to yesterday’s appointment of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to the Dropbox board. The grumbles began on Twitter and Reddit mere minutes after the announcement was made, and they’ve only continued to grow since then. 

Internet activists are at it again. Following yesterday’s news regarding the appointment of Condoleezza Rice, former United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, to the board of cloud storage and syncing service Dropbox, a petition has sprung up online, demanding that users tell Dropbox they’re opposed to this move, and threaten to leave the service if Rice isn’t removed from the board. The appointment was not met without controversy, of course, as Rice’s position in the Bush administration saw her commenting on Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction, which played a role in the U.S. deciding to go to war with Iraq. However, even the petition’s writer admits that Rice is an “extremely brilliant and accomplished individual,” and “well-connected,” which is why a company like Dropbox would have welcomed her to its board.
