Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day

Alfred W. Fielding

Alfred W. Fielding

I did not know that such a thing called Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day existed in the country but apparently it is true and we do have such a thing, a day, a tradition actually which honors the inventor of the bubble wrap.

The date of the celebration is January 26 and it is celebrated in honor of Alfred W. Fielding. Alfred was a co inventor of this piece along with Stevens Institute of Technology.

The technology dates back to the late 1950s and you guessed it right. Like most things in the 20th century, the land of invention was none other than the land of the free and home of the brave – United States of America.

Invention of bubble wrap is the classic story of serendipity, where you plan and execute to achieve some objective but end up achieving and resolving something else.

The saga begins in 1957 in a home garage in Hawthorne, New Jersey where two engineers with an entrepreneurial streak are trying to invent a plastic wallpaper with a paper backing. It does not succeed. But guess what, they realize that their invention can be used as a packing material.

And to cut to the chase, they give birth to what is now known everywhere as The Bubble Wrap. The company that gets to market it? Sealed Air Corporation. Creative there eh.

Many thanks for sharing your notions.

      The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
