Poor old QR codes

I read an article on Medium the other day about how Google Glass could turn out to be the new Segway.

To be honest you could write those sort of articles about most new products and tech start ups. Especially when they are so new that we haven't had time to feel comfortable with them.

I was dismissive of both Facebook and Twitter in their early days. Now I couldn't imagine life without either of them.

Poor old QR codes however are a whole different ballgame.

I want to love them. I really do.

But unless they're actually worth all the hassle of downloading a reader and scanning them they will be forever a digital folly.

Just don't quote me on that!
