Breaking out of a Box


In his Weekly Update, Stowe Boyd, the Gigaom Research curator for social (AKA, the lead analyst for the future of work)  asks, “Is the tide turning for Box?”

In dual announcements Box revealed that 1) GE has selected the company as a corporate-standard content sharing and collaboration tool, and 2) the Box Notes web co-editor has moved from beta to general release.

Stowe ponders, is this a pivotal moment in Box’s development as an IPO-worthy company? As a competitor in the collaborative file space with Google, Microsoft, and Apple? As an acquisition target for Microsoft or IBM?
