Google, and Others, Invest In QR Code Developement [techcrunch.com]
The most impressive thing about Scan is that it, as a humble QR code app, has raised over $1.7 million in seed funding from, wait for it, Shervin Pishevar via Menlo Ventures, Google Ventures, Charles River Ventures, Yuri Milnerís Start Fund, Social + Capital Partnership, Transmedia Capital, Ludlow Ventures and angels Ariel Poler, Naval Ravikant of AngelPool, Jim Pallotta of Raptor Group and Gaga manager Troy Carter.

Provo, Utah-based Scan co-founder Garrett Gee finds QR codes as distasteful as the next person, but he believes in exceptions. He thinks Scan can go beyond its modest ambitions as a QR code and 1D barcode scanner and make those awkward squares that now serve as hopeful addendums to things like movie posters and conference badges ubiquitous and user-friendly.

For a while I though QR codes where going to really take off, but it really hasn't went anywhere. Most phones still require an ap to be installed to read a barcode or QR code. Its not even standard yet!

I think of QR codes in the same way I think of blink links "click here" hmm yea right.

I'm seeing QR codes in a lot more places these days.

I've most often seen them on billboard ads. I've also seen them on TV shows. Other suggestions include the codes appearing on conference and expo badges, but that does have privacy issues.

I see them a lot, but I don't honestly think I have ever seen anyone interact with them?
