My son tipped me off about Scannable Bar Codes for cellphone users being very popular in Taiwan and Japan. They are used to help tourist with directions, as advertizments, as info for museums, shows, real estate signs, exhibits,etc.

Interesting article about Barcode Scanning in the Real World

Jafabrit is now Scannable
So anybody viewing the sketchbook can use their cellphone to scan and link to Jafabrit's Art
woo hoo!

I always learn something new over here!! I used to subscribe to the word of the day on some site or another - but who needs that when I can learn new words like palatic ;) which this carpet makes me feel....

I am intrigued by the bar code phenomenon and am happy to say that I have my own now. I might post it in the next few days or so.
