IBM Execs In NYC
IBM had a whole yarn about moving the IBM Watson Group to New York City, rubbing elbows with other companies there like Google and Facebook, and taking inspiration from the younger workforce in the city. The invite for the event said "business casual," but the funny thing was seeing all the IBM execs there in blue and gray suits, minus the ties -- as if losing the tie suddenly makes you "Silicon Alley" casual.

There was one IBM exec there who was actually wearing jeans, but after he gave a talk, the IBM exec playing emcee made sport of him for wearing cowboy boots -- as if he's some sort of rebel. I'd bet anything that the IBMers will all be wearing their ties there on Wednesday when CEO Ginni Rometty shows up for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. You can take the fish out of Somers and Armonk, but you can't change a corporate culture overnight.
