IBM Films

IBM recently released two short films to celebrate their 100 year anniversary. They are definitely worth checking out if you are into this sort of thing. Sure, they’re puff pieces, marketing gimmicks, and what have you; but they’re also pretty cool. The first one especially. It is titled They Were There – People who changed […]
