I love QR

March 18 2009, 12:03pm

Is it the way everything is so neatly aligned? Is it the monochromatic styling? Is it the sheer simplicity of it?

I'm not at all sure why exactly I'm fascinated by QR codes, but as one who has recent been attracted to ventures in the field of mobile applications, this represents a pretty amazing opportunity.

As you can see on my site in the sidebar, there is a QR code. Although it directly links back to this site, for someone using a QR reader, he or she would be directed to this site without having to type in a url. Think about it, you're reading a magazine article, come to the end, and decide you want more. You scan the QR code with your phone and are directed to the product or article's site with more information about what you were reading.

Simply amazing!
