Re: "What is IBM?"
Fast forward to 2017... My pre-teen daughter asks, "Daddy, what's IBM? What do they do?"
IBM's largely invisible to the general public. I can't recall the last time I saw an IBM commercial on TV. I think that last one might have been the one where the execs called in the police to report their data center was cleaned out but it turned out that their nerdy-looking admin had virtualized everything onto a single rack's worth of hardware. How old was that one? I'm guessing it was from /at least/ 4-5 years ago.
