Posted by Howie2.0 in qr codes , mobile , iPhone , immediate , Data , Convenience , cellular , blackberry , barcodes


QR (Quick Response) codes are 2D barcodes and one of the innovations promising immediacy in data retrieval. They work in a similar way to the barcodes used in retail – where they are used to store product quantity and prices, except QR codes can hold much more data.

Yes, I know the general term for WAP enabled phones these days is “smartphone”, but after doing some research on the Vodafone 555 Blue, I had to borrow the term “dumbphone” from Tech Crunch’s Chris Velazco.

Polar bears and iPads, ice bergs and Blackberry’s, forests and Twitter.

This week’s post deals with the issue of our world’s resources, and the severe crisis in trying to sustain these valuable commodities. I stumbled upon this post whilst wading through a very long list of new Twitter feeds. 

Now because I am a Journalism student, I've had to adapt to the habit of receiving an inordinate amount of news, at all hours of the day and using my own filter to decide what I need to read right away, what I need to read by the end of the day, and what I can add to a list of things I’ll hopefully read later on this year (key word – hopefully).

I was talking to my sister the other day, the one that resembles a kichel. She was asking me what the difference is between all the phones that are on the market.

A picture (or at least a diagram) paints a thousand words

Posted by Dissol in religion , NYTimes , Data


Being stuck under prolonged house arrest has given me opportunity to catch up with some reading; I have been going through countless scientific papers recently.  I have also had chance to read many more news sites, from all around the world.

This article in the New York Times caught my eye.  After reading through different scientific papers, where they present data in a variety of different ways, I actually thought that this diagram is very, very powerful.  There are so many conclusions that you are able to draw from this clear representation of data.  To the extent that I am not going to comment - you can draw your own conclusions!!
