Codes, phones and the brave new world

I have discovered how to create and embed QR codes, those strange looking square black and white checkerboard bar codes that direct you to a web site, picture, or Mars. The only problem is my cell phone doesn't have a camera. Shocking, I now know, since several people didn't believe me until I showed it to them. I've had it for years, it works fine, I can talk or text, even play games, and I can't bring myself to discard it. Oh yes, and the fact that the new Internet-capable camera-included phones cost more than my TV set. Practically.
This does present a challenge. I can put codes on every bit of media I use on the computer, print them on business cards and t-shirts and throw them out of airplanes to the populace below. I don't know for sure that they are sending anyone where I hope they are.
Enter my friend Mary. I print out a code, e-mail it or walk it the half mile to her house, she snaps a picture of it on her modern phone and we wait to see what will pop up in the viewer. This process isn't as much fun as it sounds since rework requires that the whole cycle be repeated, and I'm starting to lay out broad hints to my darling Randy that Christmas is coming.

Some very useful pointers into how to breakaway from technology and realize that we are human after all. A bit ironic as while realing this I am unable to sleep so using the computer to browse interesting articles on the web. Also been trying to find ways of getting my 4 year old to use the Xbox, Ipad, DS and Computer and play with normal toys instead.

I enjoy you because of all of the effort on this web site. Betty delights in going through investigations and it is easy to understand why. My spouse and i notice all regarding the compelling medium you deliver practical ideas through the web blog and therefore cause participation from other people on the area of interest while our simple princess is without question understanding a whole lot. Take advantage of the rest of the year. You are always carrying out a wonderful job.
