Podcast: Art Fry's invention has a way of sticking around
Many say "I could have thought of that!" about the popular Post-it Note and in this edition, we speak with Art Fry, the man who actually did think of it. Fry tells us how his invention came to be when he was working for 3M. He also talks about how playing golf helps stimulate creative thought. And yes, like many of us, he's a fan of that commercial with the squirrel using Post-it Notes to keep track of the hidden acorns.
