The past few months have been busy for COMET with lots of new faces, new places and new projects. One of the highlights was our presentation to the Adirondack Foundation's Birth to Three (BT3) Alliance at their annual meeting back in May. We gave an overview of our project with Chemung County and Comprehensive Interdisciplinary Developmental Services (CIDS) as they work to create a database of the children in their county beginning as soon as they’re born with a newborn registration completed at the local hospital.

 

Guess what happened on June 26, 1974? The first product with a bar code was scanned at a check-out counter, it was a 10-pack of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Patented in 1952, the barcode took about 50 years to become commercially viable, including advances in standardized formats and scanner systems, and boy has barcode scanning sped up getting our groceries, library books and clothes home, safe and sound.
