Barcodes, part of our collective visual vocabulary

JetCityOrange features a photo gallery of barcode tattoos, barcode graffiti, , graffiti t-shirts.

It also hosts a white paper, "Barcodes: once jargon, now slang" (PDF). An interesting read, if I may say so myself.

Enuf with the cameraphone barcodes already

Shotcode. Yet-another-who-cares-nobody-wants-them barcode scam, errr, scheme for cell phones.

I make a proprietary barcode. I stick my barcode somewhere you're going to see it. You take a picture of my barcode with your cellphone. Your cell phone calls or emails or interweb dot orgs my barcode to my server. Wonderful things happen to you but more importantly I make money.

Who fucking cares?
