An icon’s ode to icons of progress

Recently came across IBM’s 100 Icons of Progress – IBM’s celebration of a century of doing business, and encountering science, technology and transformational inventions and discoveries.

What I love about their initiative, is the beautiful way in which the ‘icons’ in their journey have been depicted. Updated regularly, the Big Blue continues to add to this fascinating list of icons, depicting each with a small note and a nicely-done graphic that ties it in so beautifully. A tip of the hat to the iconic initiative itself!

Check out some of the icons:

Magnetic Tape Storage

Building an Equal Opportunity Workforce


The Floppy Disk

The Emergence of the CIO

Corporate Leadership in Environmental Responsibility

The Selectric Typewriter
