Inspiration from the Post-it-Note!

26 Apr :  I read today about the 30th birthday of the Post-it-Note. The inventor Geoff Nicholson worked for the US stationery giant 3M. It was a good way to get rid of some not very effective adhesive and lots of scrap paper. Now it is in every household.
   He provides a great quote "Research is the transformation of money into knowledge. Innovation is the transformation of knowledge into money." Another one worth remembering relates to his struggle to get the invention noticed, "Every great new product is killed at least three times by managers." .... so you have to persist.
