IBM celebrates 100 years of creating awesomeness

IBM isn't a name that you hear being kicked around very regularly these days, at least not in the consumer market, but it has a long and rich history of enabling many of the technologies that you know and love. This documentary covers IBM's culture, some of its past highlights, and its future. If you like tech, it's a must-see.

Airline reservation systems. UPC barcodes. The personal computer. It's hard to overestimate the effect that IBM has had on the technological development of our society. It's only in hindsight that some of these advances have revealed their long-term importance, so it's especially interesting to consider the potential implications of projects like this.

The documentary is 30 minutes long, but it's a worthwhile 30 minutes, I promise. It was commissioned by IBM, and features music by Philip Glass.
