About the Instructor

After graduating from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a BS degree in physics and math, Dan Udell worked at IBM's famous Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY. He was IBM's official spokesman at the historic first launch of NASA's Space Shuttle, where he successfully explained why a software glitch in the Shuttle's five computers delayed the launch for over a day. This was the first time that computers were synchronized with software rather than with hardware.


After IBM installed a US-wide TV network, broadcast from Stamford Connecticut, Udell was put in charge to make the programs run efficiently and to ensure that the news was educating the company's workforce. He also was made the official IBM spokesman to announce all of the company's products, holding frequent press conferences and working with reporters from around the world to explain IBM's technology and products, which included the New York Times, Associated Press, CBS News, and many others.


He was appointed IBM Director of Communications with the responsibility for working with each of IBM's product Vice Presidents - from mainframes to laptops and software - to help them produce their communications strategies, and communicate to all their various publics. He developed dozens of Flash animations, created a major film to predict how IBM computers would be helping architects, designers, and business people ten years into the future, and single-handedly took hundreds of photographs of IBM employees and compressed them for display in IBM's intranet system. He has written various articles about how IBM hardware and software have been used to make customers more competitive, which were highlighted in IBM's much publicized 'Smarter Planet' campaign.
