comment What tools are sitting in front of a creative user experience designer during most of their workday?
Seriously great answers to this are rolling in. It would be hard to anoint one of them as the right answer. But I am stealing these ideas left and right.

comment Is my suspicion correct, that QR codes will be a short-lived standard with little effect?
One more comment -- nobody had an answer for my second question in my last sentence, namely "what are the use cases that would make a person wish that their scannable code could hold huge 4200 characters rather than a simply unique identifier, url, or address, that would point to fuller data?" I guess half an answer is: when the person scanning has zero net access, yet you want the person to grab long paragraphs of text when they scan. But: when the heck would that be wanted? something about encryption? uhhh...

good answers to this one. the "unity" of the checkerboard logo (as opposed to "clutter" of text) is indeed a plus. Hmm, I wonder if optical recognition would ever get so sensitive that you could actually use steganography (or something approaching it), embedded in a nice-looking picture, as a prettier QR code?

well, my initial proposal would be that one bigger fish is in fact simply standardizing inviting the reader to use OCR scanning on a particular chunk of alphanumeric content, flagged nicely by a universal standard logo. The fact that that is potentially doable by anyone-- ultimately, even someone hand-writing a xeroxed Garage Sale ad to put on a cork-board -- would make "less" become "More." Near-field is indeed a genuine, absolute value for our future. To me, its advantages include that it could be somewhat un-forgeable (the idea behind its use in passports) BUT, fails the garage sale use.

well, in my proposed method, simple alphanumeric info next to a nice standardized logo or glyph, that would hopefully draw the eye and make people realize that it was scannable. but you're right -- those square checkerboards sure as hell do stand out. that hyper distinctive shape might start to look pretty crusty after a year or two though.

true points but the issue around implementing the tool to bring people to relevant or useful resources that are "prepared" for the users' arrival is the same for QR as for other possible approaches like the one I mentioned.
