A QR code according to Wikipedia is…

“(abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that is readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, URL, or other data.”

So I had to try generating one for myself.  So here is my QR code. I used the website qrstuff.com to generate my QR code.

I am curious as to what others think of QR codes.  And does any one out there use them?

Here is an excellent article on the best uses of QR codes.  The coles note version is… QR codes are good at from physical to virtual without the hassle of typing.
