The collection of e-tributes to John Patrick on his e-tirement from IBM (after 35 years!) was collected originally via an internal IBM webpage with a simple form. Then on February 4, 2002 this data was compiled and presented on another webpage as a link based slideshow (at the time, the presentation looked the best on the Microsoft IE 5+ browsers).
On November 2013, the presentation was migrated into WordPress where it can be viewed by anywone visiting patrickWeb, using any browser. The look and feel is slightly different, but the original structure is retained – which included an an e-tribute being shown on the left part of the page, an Index of Contributors on the right which form the main navigation, and any attachments at the bottom.You may start viewing the e-tributes by clicking on any link shown on the right.
