"school shooters typically continue firing until confronted by law enforcement."

Right. Because Sister Mary Elephant yelling "young man, put that thing down" just wont work. So maybe it's time to have armed guards and metal detectors as part of a larger strategy to help stop these incidents.

1) You are sharing a work account with your wife who has her own work universe. So when she is working on an article about the "ultimate cloud deletion tool" you will get dragged into her experience without knowing it.
2) you seem to (in theory) have no problem separating your work files from your professional files.
3) you let strangers (yes they are people you are working with but) access accounts that have files that you need for more than the moment. box.com should be no more than a ftp server for transferring files and you should see that the files are deleted after the other party gets them.
4) you don't seem to have any home backup system even though your livelihood seems to be dependent on the availability of that data, not to mention your personal data. dropbox should be the backup of the backup.
In short you trusted your files to a third party and they failed that trust. the lesson is....

p.s. please post a preview of your next article " my cloud provider sold my data to advertisers without my knowledge"
