  1. Fantastic video!
    I am gonna showcase IBM at my alma mater next week, I'd like to show the kids this video but it's slightly too long- does anyone know if a shorter version of this video exist?´╗┐

  2. Ex-IBM'er here. Grateful for working there, but somewhat bitter about being laid off just prior to 9/11. Life hasn't been the same since.´╗┐

  3. Damn I remember having a Thninkpad laptop it must of been great in its prime but when I got one it was already outdated and I would get so mad at how slow it was.´╗┐

  4. I've been IT for 39 years.┬á This film more than any other thing I have every seen tells the story of why I have stayed in IT.┬á It also frames the reasons why I often say we have lost something in IT, we have almost let the magic of what we do become a drudgery.┬á Thank you for reminding me of the industry I love and why.┬á Now I have something I can share with my daughter saying, "This is what I have done with my life."┬á I have never worked for IBM but I have worked with IBM my entire career.┬á Thank you.´╗┐

  5. I just happened to "stumble across" this video, and enjoyed it so much I sent the link to a number of family members. Well done!´╗┐

  6. ex-IBMer I really thanks to IBM for becoming myself a man as I am. "Think" and "Respect to Individual" were my way to a better life. I still feel as an IBMer. Thanks to all who helped me´╗┐

  7. I loved being a IBM mainframe computer operator in the late 70s / early 80s. It was the most fun job I ever had!´╗┐
