Interview with Irving

eWeek has a two part interview with IBM's retiring visionary, Irving Wladawsky-Berger.

In Part I, on being asked how he came by his visionary capacity, Wladawsky-Berger said: "Find where the smart people are and hang out with them."

In Part II, he observes that:
The two [big things in computing] that I'm most excited about personally right now is this whole issue of bringing together technology and business more, and applying more systems and engineering principles to the world of business. And then the continuing evolution of the Internet into a platform that's much more collaborative, intelligent and visual.

Wladawsky-Berger also discusses on the long cultural war, an issue he has discussed at length on his blog. In his most recent post, entitled "Think, Play, Do: Technology, Innovation, and Organization", he seems to share the perspective of Richmond's Play, a consulting company specializing in using play to stimulate innovation.
