IBM recently launched a social networking initiative aimed at connecting up existing IBMers, and former IBM employees (“IBM alumni”). The initiative is called Greater IBM. There’s a blog if you are interested in learning more. Currently the network is organised around a group on the OpenBC network… OpenBC itself is changing to become Xing in the near future.
Tomorrow, there’s going to be a Greater IBM “bloc party” in Second Life. We recently held a very successful 3D Jam in SL internally, and we also held a press conference last month discussing some of the cool stuff that we’ve been involved with in SL. If you follow the eightbar blog, you might be aware of some of what we’ve been up to already.
Oh, here’s my OpenBC profile, in case you want to hook up. If you’re already connected to the Greater IBM group, I hope you can make it to the virtual bloc party tomorrow, and I look forward to meeting you!
Update: 3pointD have also got some information on the bloc party…
