Ok, I’m going to be up front and let you know that today’s BIMD is only going to appeal to IT folks so the rest of the folks are forewarned. I came across another slideshare in CIO Magazine created by Tim Greene. It was originally published in Network World. The title: “Are you an IT Geezer?” I loved the title and it totally fits the BIMD theme since the author goes back in time – way back - and asks questions to test how savvy you are about vintage computer stuff such as Magnetic Core Memory. There were a few that I didn’t know and it was good to get a refresher.
My favorite question: In the 1960′s, IBM was referred to as Snow White by other computer companies. Who were the 7 dwarfs?
So go back in time, take the test & see if you’re an IT Geezer. You’re guaranteed to learn something I’m sure. I plan on sharing it with my Millennial IT friends to give them a good perspective on how good they have it today.
Happy Friday, everybody!
