Hello all, please allow me the honor of introducing myself to you. My name is Jessica (or Jessa if you’d prefer!) and I am a recent college graduate who is doing little more than trying to find her place in the world… and spending far far too much time on the internet in the process. I live in a tiny one bedroom with my dog Dexter, a dachshund who has more attitude than anyone I know, but I love him all the more for it and I recently got a job keeping the websites of a few local businesses up to date and working properly. I’m not an expert but I know enough to suit their needs. In my free time I read and watch historical dramas that make me wish I was born in another time… so long as I could bring my computer and phone with me. Unlikely as that is to happen, I will instead continue to dream about regency dresses and my own Mr. D’Arcy while I take cell phone photos and scan QR barcodes. I am in fact a child of the now… you just might find me talking with a fake English accent and quoting Jane Austen while waiting in line for my Big Mac and fries.
My main interest in QR codes is simply my obsession with the internet and media. I love to scan and see where it will take me and dream up ways to use QR codes for my own needs. I also have a mild obsession with celebrity gossip and youtube. That QR code next to the Situation on the cover of People magazine is bound to get scanned by myself and others like me. I need to know why it is there, the suspense is more than my wee little brain can handle.
Thank you all so much for reading and tolerating that brief, albeit truthful introduction about myself. This blog will from here on talk about QR codes and the ways I see them used. I have every intention of documenting any attempts I make at creating my own QR codes as well and will post all about the attempts, even if they are not successful. I’ll most likely also talk about ways I see QR codes being used well, or at times I may discuss why I don’t think the QR codes were used well. There are bound to be a lot of opinions good and bad and I will be very candid when discussing the various aspects of quick response codes and the products associated with them. It all begins now, and I hope that you will return and find out what it is about these codes that has drawn me and so many others into the realm of QR code mania.
