Much has been said about 2D barcodes, and the discussion has focused on the format of the 2D barcode itself -- QR Code, Data Matrix, and so on. But equally important is the format of what the barcode itself encodes. 2D barcodes encode text, generally, but that text can represent many things. Commonly, 2D barcodes encode text that represents a URL, like " http://google.com/m ". This is a special string of text since it is recognizable as a URL by readers, and therefore can be acted upon: the reader can open the URL in a browser. 2D barcodes can encode many types of actionable text.

QR codes aren’t all about campaigns and coupons. They can quite easily be used to add value and to help customers/readers/visitors do what they’d like to to.

Despite the looming figure of Death hanging over their shoulders, traditional printed newspapers are long from their EOL . That said, the way in which we consume media is developing all the time.
Last year, when West Ham played West Brom in the Premier League 's first match featuring two unsponsored teams, I suggested that their shirts could carry a QR code connected to a different message each week. Admittedly an idea fraught with potential practical issues, but the principle of using a QR code as a constant front to dynamic content has now been used as part of a campaign for Editoras in Brazil. Editoras is a Brazilian equivalent of Amazon.com and to raise awareness of their site, Editoras have recently published a Twitter based, 200 page QR code book - known as 'The Living Book'! Editoras 'Living Book' QR codes for 'Love' and 'Hate' 4000 promotional QR code stickers were posted in São Paulo and, once decoded, these revealed selected Twitter messages based on either 'love' or 'hate.'

I was tipped off via Peter at Bubblefoundry and an article over at CScout Japan about a magazine that is out currently here in Japan that is filled with pretty much only free things that you can download from QRcodes with your mobile phone. The Magazine is called Tada Gets (site is made for mobile and is all in Japanese), which basically means “get it free”. The pages are filled with a little text and/or image explaining what you can get and then the QR code that will get you to a mobile website where you can download the free content. I mentioned earlier that the use of 2D codes in Japan was already a reality and this is just one example of how they are tightly integrated into the lives of Japanese people on a daily basis.

The team needs me.’ ” In the midst of a very frustrating situation, Lilja has maintained a positive attitude. “I’m sure it’s frustrating for him to not be able to play,” Stuart said. “Being around the guys, he’s upbeat and he’s not bringing anyone else down or any- thing like that.
