Here’s to the passing of a bar code influencer

Today I learned that Alan Haberman passed away at age 81.  In 1973, Alan was instrumental to selecting those infamous black and white stripes to be used for retail products to be marked.  As we all know, today it is involved with nearly every aspect of modern life, providing a means for people to buy and sell things, couriers to track packages, and helps airlines to locate lost luggage.

My history is heavily into bar coding.  I owned and operated StrandVision for more than 13 years (now owned by Teklynx) where we produced bar code printing software products like Label Matrix that were marketed around the world.  My hat is off to Alan for all his efforts and to his family as they grieve.

      I know. It does not fit into the Digital Signage industry at all, but since my previous company of 13 years was in the bar coding industry, I felt compelled to write a brief thank you to this innovator that helped bring our company to the top of the industry and employ hundreds of people at StrandWare. Thanks for your honest opinion, and I will do my best to keep it a bit more focused in the future.
