I was reading in the PRINT edition of American Libraries about how all the cool kids can’t wait to use QR codes to access library programming via their smartphones. First: oh, sure. Second, who ever uses those things (or as Brian Kenney said on Facebook, “I think we should just donate a few examples to the Smithsonian and call it a day”)? Third, the article urges us to find out more about a library that is using them by instructing us to “click here for the details.” I want magic paper too!
And this is funny
