3.5 years in a cold New York. Did some interesting work, and got to touch history. Was involved with the web sites hosting the 1996 Atlanta Olympic games and the Deep Blue Vs. Kasparov chess games.
Only with a company like IBM do you get to do such things!
At IBM Watson, I worked on scalability and high availability. Several interesting projects come to mind - the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, Deep Blue Vs. Kasparov, Video on Demand, Karaoke on Demand (Tokyo trial :-)), Network Dispatcher, HACMP - wow! That was interesting stuff - still remember having an 8-node SP2 machine worth 1 Million bucks all to myself, playing Sledgehammer over and over :-)
