UMNP blurb

Thoroughly researched and engagingly written, Thomas J. Misa’s impressive new book tells the story of a revolutionary group of companies and individuals who, during the middle of the twentieth century, transformed the computing industry right here in Minnesota. Digital State provides a much needed look at the roots of Minnesota’s high-tech economy.
Margaret Anderson Kelliher, president and CEO of Minnesota High Tech Association and former Speaker of Minnesota House of Representatives
