Melinda Gates quits drugstore.com board

Saving the world is way more important. Gates has been on the board since drugstore.com went public in 1999

“I remain a strong supporter and plan to be a long-term shareholder in the company,” she said in a news release.

Taking her seat is Jeffrey Killeen, chief executive of GlobalSpec, an engineering search engine based in Troy, N.Y. Earlier, Killeen was chief executive of Forbes.com, and before that was chief operating officer at Barnesandnoble.com.
