The patent that started it all.

Today marks the 106th anniversary of IBM’s very first patent. US 998,631 stored data on punch cards that were the foundation of early automated computing. This simple but effective method was an instrumental part of the social security program during the Great Depression. Since then, IBM has continued to make huge improvements in the way we process and store data, but now they come in much smaller packages.
