Yes, you read that right.
I spent some time yesterday building up a QR code with my contact information: name; email address; Twitter handle; website URL.
In all actuality, that took very little time. What took awhile was inserting my logo into it. You see, while I may have some skill in editing photos in Photoshop, graphics are something I could invest a little more time with. After all, I was dieing to insert my shiny, new logo onto it. With that said, I guess I just didn't want to stop until it was just right.
But, why a QR code? Their time has passed, hasn't it?
I don't know about that. You see, NFC (near field communication) was supposed to supplant it as our go-to means of exchanging information, but with its security coming into question, and Google killing off Bump, NFC isn't the fair-haired boy we thought it once was. On the other hand, renowned security expert Steve Gibson recently proposed an open standard for secure Website login and authentication known as SQRL (Secure QR Login or "squirrel"). Earning immediate interest from the likes of Google, the W3C, and security enthusiasts around the world, the technology is on the fast track for standardization. If that happens, then QR code readers once again will populate the land, and my QR code won't seem so silly anymore.
Anyhow, I'm finished with my latest creation, and off to continue working on my photos, for awhile.
