Re: Basic6
I was not at the show but I have taken a look at overview and video section of the Basic6 site.  I can see this being very useful and look forward to seeing IoT grow.  As of this moment I don't have to worry much about managing enough devices that I need a piece of management software but it looks like you've got a good start in keeping the wild west under control.

Re: Basic6
Thank you for your interest. Basic6 is extremely proud to be chosen "Start Up of the Year 2014" this past week at Interop. Hopefully, everyone at the show was able to visit our booth and see Basic6 demonstrate its capability to wirelessly manage, control, and re program multiple embedded devices across diverse geography, as well as its ability to collect and report data from the same devices. Feel free to contact us for demonstrations or more information.

Re: Confusion in a Box
Name aside, they are doing some pretty amazing things in the enterprise.  They are bridging the consumer tech ease of use with the enterprise needs of security and control.  Not an easy thing to do.

Re: Confusion in a Box
Right, Tom, it was box.net for a while and people would often include the ".net" in the company name to make clear that they weren't talking about a cardboard box. Once they got the ".com" they insisted we should just call them "Box"

Re: Confusion in a Box
Even so, there's something to be said for having the Box.com domain name. I wonder how much the company had to pay for that.

Re: Confusion in a Box
That's a good way to look at it.  I have a box.com account that I don't think I've used more than a couple times.  I've never had any issues with the service but it's not the first place I think of for document storage.  

I'm curious to take a look at Basic6 and see if it brings the IOT together or if it just makes muddy water a little bit clearer.

Confusion in a Box
Seriously, what were they thinking when they named the company "Box" -- terrible idea for this SEO-driven era. A Google News search on "Box" brings up stories on the weekend's box office results, the search for the black box from the Malaysian airplane, and somewhere in the middle a couple of items on Levie and gang. A search on "dropbox" brings up stories on Dropbox.

I give the Box folks credit for succeeding despite themselves.
