  1. I wonder if this partnership includes product development. PD is a collaborative process requiring many stakeholders, sometimes geographically dispersed, textual content modules, algorithms, and rules. Box could provide the content storage, distribution, and collaborative platform (as could DropBox and possibly Slack).
