IBM has a tumblr, ibmlr.tumblr

IBM has a tumblr, complete with animated gif's like all the hip ones, it's at In their tumblr they brag about the little laptop doohickey aka trackpoint, ancient time recording machines, and the Space Shuttle Endeavour’s orbiter avionics are among the many many things that IBM has patents on, and they are all displayed here. The idea is of course to spread the smarts of IBM among the tumblr community, but since nearly everything is headline "IBM was here" and I see no funny cat gifs so I wonder how far it'll spread.

This isn't random, IBM has made this "centered on the art and science of inventing as we mark IBM’s 20th consecutive year of U.S. patent leadership." Yes kids, that twenty years in a row that IBM has ruled the patent seas. You're reading this on an Apple mac, aren't you?
