What does it mean to be an IBMer? Every employee experiences the company in different ways, but the global impact IBM has made on business and society over the last 100 years gives us all a common framework. "They Were There" is told by first-hand witnesses—current and retired employees and clients—who were there when IBM helped to change the way world works.

thanks IBM For helping catalog the jews for the nazis.
"But Jews could not hide from millions of punch cards thudding through Hollerith machines, comparing names across generations, address changes across regions, families trees and personal data across unending registries. It did not matter that the required forms or questionnaires were filled in by leaking pens or barely sharpened pencils, only that they were later tabulated and sorted by IBM's precision technology"

thanks for helping make a nulcear bomb
"There was extensive use of IBM punched card machines for calculations made at Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project for developing the first atomic bombs"
just putting it out there as balance, and to help people get a more complete picture

World Community Grid has been selected as one of the 100 innovations which helped shape IBM, thus highlighting the project as one of its most important contributions to society.


As part of IBM's centennial celebration, 100 innovations that helped shape IBM's first 100 years have been selected as Icons of Progress, or key milestones. These are technologies, projects or inventions that IBM believes made a lasting impact on the world.

World Community Grid was chosen because it demonstrates how computers could be turned into powerful research tools helping address some of the world's most difficult health and societal problems.

More information about the IBM centennial and the Icons of Progress may be found at the IBM at 100 website.

IBM Centennial Film: Wild Ducks - Celebrating 100 years of Visionary Clients



Former IBM chairman Thomas Watson, Jr. knew how important it was to work with people who question the way things are and challenge the status quo. In fact, he even had a name for them. "Wild Ducks" is a film about four IBM clients whose questioning minds and unconventional ideas are transforming our world. See and hear their inspirational stories.

IBM’s 100 Icons of Progress

In the span of a century, IBM has evolved from a small business that made scales, time clocks and tabulating machines to a globally integrated enterprise with more than 400,000 employees and a strong vision for the future. The stories that have emerged throughout our history are complex tales of big risks, lessons learned and discoveries that have transformed the way we work and live. These 100 iconic moments—these Icons of Progress—demonstrate our faith in science, our pursuit of knowledge and our belief that together we can make the world work better.

Check back. New stories will be added throughout our centennial year.
