Nice post... QR codes were everywhere at SouthBy SouthWest (SXSW) conference. I totally agree that their adoption is going to take off since its the easiest means for a mobile audience to quickly exchange, access or store data. At the SXSW conference, there were several folks that had QR codes on their badges to facilitate exchanging contact information. Also, one panel had it on their conclusion slide that was projected on the wall for everyone to capture for attaining the URL to the panel's presentation. Very cool stuff. THANKS.

@ David - thanks for the QR code report at SXSW! Projecting QR codes on the big screen is a great technique to allow capture by a large audience. This is taking off big time..

Pulse 2011 had them on every Ped! I just created my own QR code and tried an iPhone reader ... it was like magic. I had the same feeling of awe when I first realized how vast the internet was. I can not wait to impress my family tonight with this magic trick :-)

Anybody got any idea how to print out QR codes on labels? I'm thinking one distinct QR code per label, rather than a page of them all the same. I'd apply them to objects as identifiers and use these identifiers in a database - Evernote, say - for information about each object.

@ Martin - there are a growing number of vendors offering print software for QR codes, for example: http://www.generate-barcode.com - I have not personally tried any specialized software. What I did was generate, print, cutout, and stick some QR codes on posters as a test. I also discovered a number of web sites that offer printing services (for example: http://www.qrstuff.com/), where you can send in QR codes to be printed on hats, t-shirts, mugs, and stickers. Hope this helps!

So, I successfully experimented with qrencode on linux and qrafter on iPhone for generation and reading of QR codes. (And also PHP QR Code.) For those interested: <div>&nbsp;</div> https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/blogs/MartinPacker/entry/experimenting_with_qr_codes23?lang=en_us
