As you may or may not know, Access360 has been acquired by IBM. I am at IBM training. In Chicago.
I am treating my time here at Big Blue like Jane Goodall among the apes. It is a social experiment. I am mezmerized by this whole affair, like a car wreck which involes my paycheck. Needless to say I have been preoccupied lately.
I have a serial number. 9A0919. Not an employee number. A serial number. It’s in hexidecimal. Not base 10, but base 16.
I have been reduced to a hex number, a cog, in a machine that is larger and more stable than most African nations.
I have just completed my first day of training. I find myself a) partially excited for the future and b) hankering for a fight.
