At the time, he had no clue how this kind of glue could be used. Years went by with- out finding a commercial use. It was only until Art Fry, another 3M scientist became frustrated by the fact that the little paper pieces which he placed in his church's hymn book would constantly fall out, that the first use of sticky notes was born. They could be used as bookmarks! Since that beginning, myriads of ways of using sticky notes have been "discovered". Here’s an initial list (and there are certainly many more!)
