IBM has released a self-congratulatory video for its 100th birthday made by filmmaker Errol Morris and scored by minimalist composer Philip Glass.It’s an interesting document in its own right, explaining the origins of bar codes and airline reservation systems. But it also got us to thinking about what it takes to make a company last for a whole century.
So we wonder: which of today’s tech giants is most likely to match IBM’s achievement? We limited the choices to companies founded in the last quarter of the 20th century or later — it didn’t seem quite fair to include companies like HP, which only has to make it to 2039.
