Details

Hard plastic sign (possibly with support) issued by IBM in 1911 with the term 'THINK' printed in several languages. This is the NORWEGIAN sign. These signs date back to 1911, when Thomas J. Watson, then IBM manager, said that too little was thought. He said IBM people are not paid to work with their feet, but with their heads. And then he wrote THINK on a board. Since then, the concept of THINK has remained linked to IBM.
