Weโ€™re obsessed with learning the surprising, unique histories behind things people think they know about. Like the painting at the Met that had a giant hole punched into it, or how Jackie O ended up bringing a temple home from Egypt.

Similarly, we love learning about companies – every single one of them has an unexpected history. When we learned the story of a mild-mannered tabulator named Herman Hollerith, for instance, we had no idea that it would end with the establishment of one of the largest companies in the world.

We donโ€™t want to spoil it, though, so without further ado, check out the real hackstory of IBM.
