While those at the IBM Rational Software Development Conference were enjoying a presentation from Thomas Dolby this morning, I was in San Diego for the IBM Corporate Technology Recognition Event (CTRE), listening to a presentation by Sam Palmisano, IBM's CEO, and then Lalo Schifrin, the composer, arranger, and songwriter. Lalo wrote the theme to Mission Impossible and scored a number of hit movies, including Dirty Harry, Cool Hand Luke, and Enter the Dragon.
The CTRE is an annual event at which new IBM Fellows and Distinguished Engineers are recognized, and several million dollars in awards are handed out to master inventors and others who have made critical contributions to technologies that have advanced the industry. In my keynote at the Rational conference, I discussed the nature of innovation; here at the CTRE, it's such a cool thing to interact with so many who have innovated for the company.
Dum Dum Da Da, Dum Dum Da Da, Da Da Da....
