Multimedia design + programming + making music + bicycles, that's me.

comment Is my suspicion correct, that QR codes will be a short-lived standard with little effect?
My main use of large amounts of text is to embed the inventory details (in my case it's very useful), it's better than having a sheet of paper with printed details.

haha! but then you have the future paper electronics, which will make that technology cheaper (a lot!) and maybe even evolve to something bigger! You post gave me some ideas, and I wonder if we could interact with QR codes in a two way stream, like: I read the QR code and the code then does something (?), the best I've done so far with this thought was to embed a tiny URL and then track the number of clicks, it's hardly the same thing. I wonder if NFC could do something along these lines?

After reading your post, I agree that the QR codes may live for a long time (as do the common bar code), but what will the bigger fish be that will make the QR codes as old as todays bar code?

I use a lot of QR codes for personal inventory and I too have the same feeling that these may have their days counted, one thing that I really don't like in these codes is the inability to know what they are without reading them, I mean, you have to read them anyway with your device, but if you want to distinguish them without a device there is no way and a different system could maybe take that in account.

comment What UX solutions are there for the EU cookie legislation?
I loved the "until the visitor deletes his 'consent' cookie"... This legislation is so wrong. I haven't done anything yet about it, but see in the future browsers doing this consent request for you, then we'll have two problems, double consents?
