This past week: I did research on QR Codes (guess what feature we will implementing on YWD in the near future?) and I found very interesting information about them. I'm sure you have seen them and most people are not sure what they are. I also read a lot of opinions as to why they will go away, and the same amount of opinions as to why they are here to stay. I'm of the view that they are here to stay, though they need to mature and become more integrated with marketing strategy. More on that in my post which I tweeted below; for today's list of tweets I also touched on mobile, social media and SEO and included a great radio interview of Paul Chato talking about Tablets and RIM. Enjoy!

I know some experts recommend to get inventive to display your QR Code, but at the same time you need to think about practicality. QR Codes are scanned by smartphones only.
