QR codes are a good example of an OK idea gone wrong. I see them used most often on subway posters. Great! Oh, wait. There's no signal on the subway. That means I have to be interested enough to delicately balance my book and my coffee cup to dig out my phone, unlock it, snap a picture on a moving vehicle and then remember that I did that later to go check out a website for some contest I might have wanted to enter but probably wouldn't have and anyway it ended three weeks ago. Yes, these are the first world problems I encounter every day, and yet I find the strength to carry on.
The ONE time I did bother to do all that, I got above ground and the fucking link didn't work. FAIL! The one above is another example of heinous QR code abuse. It takes you on a journey... to the blog you're already reading! If you care enough to take me with you wherever you go, I'm very flattered! I also think you probably already have a reading list you're perfectly happy with, thereby rendering the QR code redundant.
Excuse me, I'm off to become a zillionaire. I just have to develop a prototype that doesn't look like shit.

Ha!!! Now you just need to perfect it and take it to those Shark Tank folks.
Oh YES...the shark tank folks! You will be zillionaire in no time.
the poor students attending the local university see posters with just a picture, a QR code and a title announcing, "insert-topic Month"
NO information about if the topic of the month has passed, is the current month or next month.
I kid you not
They have to look it up on their phones or seek out a campus paper for the information. So much for being in the union with time to kill and using the info board to find something to do
YES! I need this!
Why not just take a picture of the wine bottle label? ;-)
