Guiseppe D'Onofrio emigrated to America in 1904, becoming a hatmaker in Beacon, New York's Italian ghetto. His third son, Nicholas Joseph Donofrio, served as an aircraft mechanic in World War II, returning home to become a guard at a hospital for the criminally insane. Nicholas's son, Nick Donofrio, grew up to lead IBM as Executive Vice President of Innovation and Technology. If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes is a powerful testimony to our ability as human beings to drive transformation, not just within the realm of technology but across generations.
