New York Times, 5/13/2021
Since their introduction in 1980, Post-it Notes have become a ubiquitous office product, first in the form of little canary-yellow pads — billions of which are sold annually — and later also in different hues and sizes, some with much stickier adhesives. There are currently more than 3,000 Post-it Brand products globally. Dr. Silver worked in 3M’s central research laboratory developing adhesives. 
In 1968, he was trying to create one that was so strong it could be used in aircraft construction.
