pictures of yesterday's geekdom

I just found a cool collection of vintage IBM photography. A treasure trove of tech history, presented in the most boring, unfriendly way, on IBM's site. (There's soooo many cool things they COULD be doing here.)

I especially loved the "Mobile Customer Engineer" pictured above. I'm pretty sure he's the guy who would come and fix your mobile device, when it had trouble syncing with your corporate email account. But that's just a guess. ;-)

Let me geek out here for a second:

The corporation pictured here was founded by the Wright Brothers. The man is riding a bicycle.

The Wrights were bicycle mechanics before they pioneered aviation.

Thanks for the link to that cool set of shots.
