Fun with QR codes!! Really!

Realising I was losing the techno-stakes race, in that nearly everyone I know except me seemed to know what the hell these things were, I recently investigated QR codes: you know, those over-developed bar code thingies that seem to be popping up everywhere?

I started by downloading an app for my iPad that actually interprets the things,, then I got pointed via a tweet (thanks @cupton1!) at a site that details “8 Really #Geeky But Creative Ways To Use #QR Codes At Home” – and I was hooked.  Especially when I learned that you can make them yourself without even trying very hard – by exactly the same procedure you can use to shorten URLs, which at least I cracked a few years ago.

So here’s a couple for your interest and delectation – including links to short stories published in That Magazine, and to a QR fun site.  Enjoy!
