Post-it notes

Spencer Silver, an inventor at 3M, was trying to create a new super-glue. Unfortunately, his glue never worked since it was too easy to detach. But, 10 years later, his colleague Arthur Fry wanted to solve the problem of paper notes that always fell out of his note book, and the glue surfaced. The rest is modern business history. (From the catalogue 1999.)
