IBM LogoAfter thirty-eight years at IBM, it was hard to cut the cord. One of my self-appointed duties as an e-tiree has been to post news clips of things going on at the company. Fortunately, there is a lot going on there! I post what I call “IBM Happenings” more or less once a month. Not sure if I will do this forever but people seem to find it useful. Click a thumbs up or down after the postings to let me know what you think. There is an archive of the news clips since I began posting back in 2004.
