So that law enforcement can't access his data? What is his "business" area to be exact?

I love the irony of this comment being posted by an AC. Tell you what, post using your real name, address and phone number, and I'll tell you a dozen reasons why privacy, even from law enforcement, can be a legitimate business need.

Of course it can be impossible. Encrypt the data yourself, using a well-known, open-source, trusted and verified program, and keep the keys yourself. Dropbox can't decrypt anything then. Why anyone would trust them in the first place, especially a smart guy like Miguel, is beyond me.

Not even interview *skills*, but the intangibles mentioned in other threads here. Way back when I used to do the entry-level interviews, I'd tell people (not the ones I was interviewing) that the interview is generally over in about 10 seconds. Walk in, say "hello", shake hands, sit down, and in easily 80% of the cases it's over. The remaining half-hour is just for courtesy.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
