Be careful with whom you deal

[sarcasm on]
Hmm. So, I'm waiting for the following ad campaign, complete with horrifyingly graphic images:

"IBM: our machines assisted with the systematic slaughter of six million people. Just think what we can do for your company!"
[sarcasm off]

Somehow, I think I'll be waiting a very long time.

Seriously, I don't blame anyone currently at IBM for this. However, I think it's a damned good reminder to be really cognizant of both personal and professional associations. I wish I thought people would use it as a cautionary tale in their lives, but I'm not so naive anymore.

Thanks to Tag for the link.
