Not everyone on the board of a tech company needs to be a techie, though some definitely should be.

There's no doubting her ability and toughness.

If she takes the job seriously I'm sure that she will do very well.

I don't think the parent cares how good a job she does or whether or not she is a techie. It's her actions as a politician he/she has a problem with. Switching away from Dropbox would make my life somewhat more difficult but I'm considering it.

From an outside reading of what seemed to happen in that White House, I'd say "there's no doubting her ability to stay on everyone's good side by watching which way the wind blows and not standing on any principle whatsoever".

Which is probably good business -- but I'd hesitate to call it toughness.
