QR Code: Oh, that's what that is.

Officially:QR Code is a matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code), readable by QR scannersmobile phones with a camera, and smartphones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be text, URL or other data.


I was at my day job and my buddy came across a QR code and asked me about it. I kind of knew what it was, but we had time to research it and found out how cool it really is. You can google "QR code generator" and find sites that you can generate the image for free. When someone scans it with their phone (you will need the app) it will either take you to a website, geocoded map, call up an email address, display a text message dial a phone number. If you scan this image it takes you to my website. I can see a lot of practical uses for this, but the first thing I want to do is get a t-shirt with it printed on the back.

Blogs and sub-domains

Today I am working on posting my new blog directly to my domain www.websitedesignerhouston.com using the sub-domain feature. This is a great way to easily link in your blog and website so visitors can comfortably navigate back and forth.
