learnin' QR

After seeing a few on the subway today, I decided to revisit QR codes and how we might use them for the RASC Toronto Centre, on printed materials, on our web site. I was really hoping I could get events into people's calendars quickly!

Found the QR Stuff web site for creating codes. Very easy. Very slick. Made some test codes.

After installing i-nigma to an hp iPAQ hw6955, I did some testing. I was able to read in URLs! w00t! But long text entries, events (in vCalendar format), email messages did not work. The codes were too dense. Bummer.

Still, if this works, I will ask everyone producing docs to put this in their file...
