Re: QR Codes: The nuts and bolts

What Jay said...

Though as OCR technology improves, we might see QR codes having only a short lifetime in the consumer/edu space.
E.g. Google Goggles can scan business cards already.

Thought I would see how it performed, just for you Stephen :-)

With the first card I tried it took three attempts before it was able to read the text without major errors (and I had to be very careful how I positioned the text in the image area for it to work)

Then I tried a URL. I needed a lot of clear space around the URL so that it wouldn't include extra text. Worked very well using an OCR font, not at all well with Lucida Console.
