Alexandra Guité's curator insight, August 17, 2013 1:02 PM

"Professor Mitra is a Physicist and teaches Educational Technology at Newcastle University. Some years ago he had a revolutionary idea: “The Hole in the wall”. He installed computers in the streets of the slums of India and observed that children organize by themselves and learn naturally. So have we all a teacher’s soul inside us?''

History of IBM - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

International Business Machines, abbreviated IBM and nicknamed "Big Blue", is a multinational computer technology and IT consulting corporation headquartered in Armonk, New York, United States. The company is one of the few information technology companies with a continuous history dating back to the 19th century. IBM manufactures and sells computer hardware and software (with a focus on the latter), and offers infrastructure services, hosting services, and consulting services in areas ranging from mainframe computers to nanotechnology.[1]Ginni Rometty is the president and CEO of IBM.

IBM has been well known through most of its recent history as one of the world's largest computer companies and systems integrators.[2] With over 433,362 (2012) employees worldwide, IBM is one of the largest and most profitable information technology employers in the world.[3] IBM holds more patents than any other U.S. based technology company and has eleven research laboratories worldwide.[4] The company has scientists, engineers, consultants, and sales professionals in over 170 countries.[5] IBM employees have earned five Nobel Prizes, four Turing Awards, five National Medals of Technology, and five National Medals of Science.[6]

The roots of IBM date back the 1880s, decades before the development of electronic computers. Since the 1960s or earlier, IBM has described its formation as a merger of three companies: the Tabulating Machine Company (with origins in Washington, D.C. in the 1880s), the International Time Recording Company (founded 1900 in Endicott), and the Computing Scale Company (founded 1901 in Dayton, Ohio, USA).[7][8] The merger was engineered by noted financier Charles Flint, and the new company was called the Computing Tabulating Recording (CTR) Company.[9] CTR was incorporated on June 16, 1911 in Endicott, New York, U.S.A.. CTR was a holding company; the individual companies continued to operate using their established names until the holding company was eliminated in 1933.[10][11] The 1911 CTR stock prospectus states that four companies were merged; the three described by IBM, above, and the Bundy Manufacturing Company (founded in 1889).[12] Flint remained a member of the board of CTR until his retirement in 1930.[13]
