I got my Time magazine this week and on two pages were ads with yellow post-it notes slapped over them. Real post-it notes, not something printed on the page. Hmm. How do they do that I began wondering and wondering and wondering. After driving fellow workers crazy in the newsroom I was encouraged to call and find out.
