Digi welcomes our machine overlords


By Nick Nelson

If the past 10 years were about connecting people – via email, social networks and P2P online services – the next 10 will be about connecting machines, so believes Jordan Husney, product manager for Digi International.

Digi has been around since 1985 and became a publicly traded company in four short years (NASDAQ: DGII).  Once a dominant force in computer sharing technology, the advent of Internet protocols and wireless networks forced the company to reinvent itself over time at the risk of falling out of style.
