QR Codes (which technically stands for “Quick Response”) have been with us since their invention in Japan in the min-1990s. Their appearance in the US has been tightly tied to the popularity of smartphones. From a usage perspective, they are a very fast way to read a URL or other information into a smartphone, bypassing laborious manual entry.
We came across a couple of interesting posts about QR codes that we’d like to share.
First is a fun InfoGraphic from Holy Kaw – “Who’s scanning all these QR codes?”
Next is an example posted on Drew McLellan’s blog with some video about QR code use in New York City’s Central Park.
