I wrote a story back in April about comments made by IBM's head of human capital management, Tim Ringo.


He told Computer Weekly's sister publication Personnel Today that it could reduce its workforce from 399,000 today to 100,000 in 2017. He said IBM would re-hire the workers as contractors for specific projects and, when necessary, use crowd sourcing.


Here is the full story.


The reason I write about this now is because today the story is being viewed by thousands of people. We can see how many people are reading articles and this stood out like a sore thumb.


Is something going on at IBM?


The reason I ask this is because a spike like this for an old story usually means a development.

Not sure why, but something strange going on!
