We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Who was Herman Hollerith? His company, the Tabulating Machine Company (1890), was renamed International Business Machines in 1924. IBM, with headquarters in Armonk, NY, is currently the second-largest private employer in the US. When I was young, key punch systems were still in wide use.
With its PC arm sold to Levono, the Server side growing smaller, and the future opening of the Kenyan Research faclility (what happened to all that land they purchased in Romania for the same purpose - gonna make it an IBMer rest home\R&R facility?), I'm surprised they're even in Armonk.
Pretty much everyone whom I was in Global Services has left, and its a shell of its former self.
