IBM Gives Feds $45M in Translation Tech

OK, I admit I'm prejudiced, but this is just too cool.

To Honor an Employee's Wounded Son, IBM Offers Military $45 Million in Translation Technology

See for details.

I hope the Pentagon figures out how to keep the stuff.

Most impressive, the gift comes from the very top. President of IBM Sam Palmissano called and wrote to President Bush.

From all reports, there were no strings attached. We know you've been looking at this stuff. We want to honor one of our employee's sons, who happens to be a soldier and was injured. Here, here's $45million in stuff. Take it.

Make me very proud.
