IBM is Cool

IBM is relentless in its pursuit of computing technology. Recently they were able to use a single atom as a transistor by detecting its on and off states with an electron microscope. This is insane, but I’m glad to have a behemoth entity like IBM which can spend the time and money delving into new technology that will take us forward in our pursuit of speed and energy reduction.

Working at IBM

I worked at IBM for about 5 days in 2007 where I trained to be a customer service representative at a call center. We were all given IBM Thinkpads and IBM email addresses. The thing I remember the most was how strict the rules were and how you weren’t allowed to type something first in Notepad, you had to type it first into the ticketing system. I left that job to do IT work full time.
