[Recorded April 7, 2004]
Computer pioneers and National Medal of Technology awardees Erich Bloch, Fred Brooks, Jr. and Bob Evans with current IBM technology chief Nick Donofrio discuss the extraordinary IBM System/360 project.

IBM launched the System/360 on April 7, 1964. Many consider it the biggest business gamble of all time. At the height of IBM's success, Thomas J. Watson, Jr. bet the company's future on a new compatible family of computer systems that would help revolutionize modern organizations. This lecture presents a behind-the-scenes view of the tough decisions made by some of the people who made them, and discusses how the System/360 helped transform the government, science and commercial landscape.
