A bad experience with Box.com

Mistakes happen. Things get hacked. Data can be lost. This tale is, however, a little different. In this case, Box.com helped make the situation fall apart.

Let me start by saying that I am a bit of a nut about cloud storage. The ability to store all my data online, automatically sync it, and access it from virtually any machine has changed my life in a number of ways, almost all of them good.

So I use services like Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, and Box.com religiously to move work between my desktop and laptop and/or collaborate with far flung colleagues. I never have to worry about having the latest version of a story to work on, or even what machine I need to bring with me. It’s nice.
