Postmodernism, Writ Small  APR 29 2002

Postmodernism, Writ Small is a brief history of the Post-It Note: "Until Fry took an interest in Silver's adhesive, it was considered a failure rather than an invention. As far as anyone in 3M's marketing department knew, there was no great consumer demand for lousy tape. But for Fry's purposes, this new kind of adhesive was perfect. It would allow him to create a bookmark that would stay fixed to a page, but also be easily removable."
