Slightly off-topic: IBM visionary retires

Darryl Taft over at eWeek has an article about and interview with IBM's Irving Wladawsky-Berger, who is retiring after 37 years with IBM. This is slightly off-topic because Wladawsky-Berger isn't a WebSphere guy, but I thought the article and interview were interesting nonetheless. He's obviously had an varied career and been involved in a bunch of key IBM initiatives. That's one of the things I like most about IBM - there's no shortage of diversity when it comes to interesting things to work on. Full disclosure: I've never met Wladawsky-Berger.
