I’ve been reading the paper and noticed ‘QR’ codes… so I decided to go and get one for me too!
According to Wikipedia:
A QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside of the industry due to its fast readability and large storage capacity compared to traditional UPC barcodes. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of four standardized kinds (“modes”) of data (numeric, alphanumeric, byte/binary, Kanji), or by supported extensions virtually any kind of data.
So, if you scan this code, it will take you to MargeKatherine.com
Now that I have this funny looking code – where do I put it… I mean besides on my welcome mat, car magnet, bandanna, bicycle flag, cocktail napkins, wall hanging, henna tattoo, dog collar, ceiling above my bed and … ??? Suggestions?

Wild, isn’t technology amazing?
seriously? that is awesome!!
We use this a lot at work (I work in Marketing). I started a new blog for my social media class (it’s an assignment) that I think you’ll enjoy. I post about all the social media discussions we have in class. http://www.j9socialmedia.posterous.com I’m really enjoying grad school especially when my assignment is to blog!
funny you should mention this. I just downloaded a QR scanner the other dat because I seeing these codes and wanted to see what it was all about. Great minds think alike.
That is amazing, I didn’t know you could have your own code. 🙂
Reblogged this on OISE Bristol Blog and commented:
Here’s a great example of the QR codes I mentioned yesterday. The Inside Out Cafe has a QR code and now needs to decide where to put it. Have you heard of any novel uses of these codes?
I was going to ask, now that you’ve got “it” what do we do with it? Better questions might be where do you get one and how do you scan it, use it?
Can it become a tatoo? LOL – could I put it on my artwork? Interesting idea…
LOVE it! Yes…how to use it for a blog? Keep us ‘posted’ (ha!) would you please? xo
Technology is fun, especially when you have time to learn it and play with it! Been dabbling in anything outside your comfort zone lately?
Nice blog you have there! I love the fact that now that I have the scanner I am seeing the codes EVERYWHERE!
Great minds truly do think alike! Even when they don’t have the same parents, like we do!!
It’s magic! And as simple as entering “free qr code” into any search engine. Now, what to do with it …
Starbear!!! What a brilliant idea! Put it on your art work and the code will take people to your web page and link them to all your wonderful photos, pricing, artist information and on and on! YES…
I am hoping others come up with ideas on how to apply it — but Starbear’s comment on adding it to her art work is great! The code can take people right to her site, pricing, inventory, artist information, webpage, and more!
Now, for me …. I’m still thinking!
Thanks for reblogging my post. I’m eager to hear if others can show me new ways to use the code.
Thanks so much!
😎 Enjoy your new code!
I’m impressed! You own your own bar code..cool!
Yes, now I should start to use it!
