Although not at IBM, in the late 70s/early 80s I was the "model" for a
photo that went into an annual report.

The photographers are the ones that insist on the pose.

They insisted that I be "doing something" even though that "something"
was to act like I was pressing a button on a machine that was not complete
yet, and which if pressed would have done nothing whatsoever.  This,
despite my insistence that this pose was clearly nonsense.
