Post-it Note Force Pad?

Postby Jeff.Prace » October 26th, 2010, 7:04 pm

I remember reading an idea that used a Post-it Note pad as a forcing device. Does anyone recall what issue it was in?

I should mention that it turned out Josh had inadvertently reinvented the Post-It Note force-pad idea, but I can't seem to find the published precedent anymore. I recall there being a thread about it but it isn't turning up in my searches. There's also a chance I'm misremembering the whole thing, and I may actually be asleep right now dreaming this post.

You remember correctly, David. Steve Cohen invented it first, and it was published right in the Magicana column (the issue was from the 1990s, so Jeff can find it in the archives once they're back up).

Also, more recently, Kostya Kimlat did an e-book on the the Z-pad (that's what I call it for short, I don't think Steve or Kostya gave it a name). It can be found here: http://www.kostyamagic.com/products/nocards.php. Kostya was terrific about the attributions, and I believe he even includes some of Steve's work with it.
