so is the live feed not working tonite?

1:14 am bryankemp: ours are a bit more than updateable, since we can make the decision on where what the destination is at scan time. #qrchat

1:15 am truemc: Why not create a mobile landing page with contact or a directory of info that you can always update? #qrchat.
1:16 am bryankemp: anyway, I read way too much about the spec, and we are developing tools that break most of the rules, but stay in spec #qrchat.
1:16 am MrShri: @truemc I was thinking the same #qrchat
1:16 am aldsaur: Good ?, thx RT @truemc: Why not create a mobile landing page with contact or a directory of info that you can always update? #qrchat.

1:16 am QRmedia: RT @bryankemp: I read way too much about the spec, and we are developing tools that break most of the rules, but stay in spec #qrchat.

1:17 am aldsaur: RT @DaveChomitz: @bryankemp Really – that’s very interesting .. a number of links in one code or a landing page ?#qrchat
1:17 am bryankemp: @My_Codes will allow you to determine based on time of day, location, etc what the destination will be. #qrchat
1:18 am bryankemp: .@truemc did I answer your question? #qrchat
1:18 am aldsaur: So dynamic & preprogrammed? RT @bryankemp: @My_Codes will allow U2 determine based on time of day, location, etc the destination. #qrchat

1:23 am gnosisarts: @bryankemp How did you choose the domain, mycod.es ? I love those type of novelty domains 🙂 #qrchat
1:23 am bryankemp: so what else interests you? #qrchat
1:24 am gnosisarts: @bryankemp b/c .es is technically the TLD for Spain, correct? #qrchat

1:28 am aldsaur: RT @AboveTheStatic: @bryankemp Do U play up the novelty angle when demonstrating QR? Are people excited, skeptical when they see..? #qrchat
1:28 am bryankemp: one of the things that seems to really work, is changing the destination of the codes on the back of the cards and tweeting about it #qrchat
1:28 am gnosisarts: Just FYI, new qrchat guests here tonight have been added to our member list at http://twvt.us/qrchat #qrchat

1:31 am reyonman: at #sxsw peoples faces always lit up when we’d change the url for the code on our card in front of them, then had them rescan #qrchat
1:32 am aldsaur: @BryanKemp do U think ppl reload scan when you tweet abt new content? Is that the source of traffic? #qrchat
1:32 am bryankemp: some of the other ideas we’ve had is to create a 1 second qrcode superbowl ad. #qrchat.
1:32 am DaveChomitz: @bryankemp do you find some phones cache the first scan and just reload on the 2nd scan ? #qrchat
1:32 am smartel: @bryankemp Speaking of sxsw, this was almost annoying the quantity of qr codes !! The were all over the city and the trade show! #qrchat
1:33 am aldsaur: Can U Xplain more? not sure I get it RT @bryankemp: some of the other ideas we’ve had is to create a 1 second qrcode superbowl ad. #qrchat.
1:33 am gnosisarts: RT @reyonman: at #sxsw peoples faces always lit up when we change the url for the code on our card in front of them <– wow factor #qrchat
1:33 am bryankemp: I think that the novelty is driving the rescan traffic at ths point, but if the content is gd it might B a gd way 2 reach out. #qrchat
1:33 am gnosisarts: @smartel Why was it annoying? Overmarketing? Overdone? #qrchat
1:33 am aldsaur: Good question RT @DaveChomitz: @bryankemp do you find some phones cache the first scan and just reload on the 2nd scan ? #qrchat

1:36 am truemc: @bryankemp Does MyCod.es work with all browsers for setup/change? #qrchat
1:36 am reyonman: @aldsaur I haven’t seen any caching issues so far. It has always been a concern of ours, but hasn’t been an issue yet. #qrchat
1:36 am bryankemp: as with most marketing the more times you make the viewer have to interact the lower your conversion rate #qrchat
1:36 am aldsaur: RT @reyonman: I haven’t seen any caching issues so far. It has always been a concern of ours, but hasn’t been an issue yet. #qrchat
1:36 am aldsaur: RT @bryankemp: as with most marketing the more times you make the viewer have to interact the lower your conversion rate #qrchat
1:37 am reyonman: Most browsers are pretty selective regarding caching of redirects. #qrchat
1:37 am bryankemp: we have looked at IE, Firefox, Safari, Chome, iOS, android so far and everything has been good. #qrchat
1:37 am smartel: @gnosisarts There were too many “scan to win an ipad 2” during sxsw. Needs more originality/creativity #qrchat
1:38 am JennieB: @bryankemp 3 out of 5 QR codes I scanned at SxSW led me to a login page #qrchat #fail cc: @AshLaf @antonymd
1:38 am aldsaur: If you are lurking, we have @bryankemp, supported by @reyonman as guest speaker on #qrchat Feel free to ask them UR questions

1:38 am gnosisarts: RT @bryankemp: as with most marketing the more times you make the viewer have to interact the lower your conversion rate #qrchat
1:38 am smartel: @bryankemp +1 PLZ people as less redirect to FB pages as possible. If people aren’t logged in, its a fail #qrchat
1:38 am gnosisarts: RT @bryankemp: donts. #qrcodes have to be fast. you cant send someone to a site where they have to login #qrchat
1:38 am DecidedWorth: @reyonman Good for you … We seen BB’s cache on updated information not showing without refresh @bryankemp ?? #qrchat
1:38 am bryankemp: #qrcodes should be spontaneous with a huge reward for taking the time to scan them. #qrchat
1:40 am aldsaur: were they promo codes? RT @BigMikeInAustin: @bryankemp But using it for unique codes, like #infektd did, that’s useful #qrchat
1:40 am AboveTheStatic: @bryankemp Presumably there’s a call to action at end of most QR scans.Can you share any conversion rates for these, even ball park? #qrchat
1:41 am elijahweb: RT@bryankemp: as with most marketing the more times you make the viewer have to interact the lower your conversion rate #qrchat
1:41 am DecidedWorth: RT @GnosisArts: & @truemc gave us another DON’T last wk: Make sure ur landing page is mobile-friendly #qrchat
1:41 am aldsaur: Shld B obvious! LOL RT @GnosisArts: & @truemc gave us another DON’T last wk: Make sure ur landing page is mobile-friendly #qrchat
1:41 am DebInATX: RT @aldsaur: If you are lurking, we have @bryankemp, supported by @reyonman as guest speaker on #qrchat Feel free to ask them UR questions
1:41 am bryankemp: I am not sure what the conversion rate really is. we just started our heavy push last week. I expect it is pretty good. #qrchat.
1:41 am truemc: So agree – make it magic! RT @bryankemp: #qrcodes should be spontaneous with a huge reward for taking the time to scan them. #qrchat
1:41 am BigMikeInAustin: @aldsaur @bryankemp it was unique codes to identify badges & game play missions #qrchat
1:41 am gnosisarts: @JennieB Hi Jennie. Are you joinin in the chat or just passing by? #qrchat
1:42 am bryankemp: My guess (and hope) is that if someone has taken the effort to scan the code they will click thru. Why wouldn’t they? #qrchat
1:42 am DougLanginGR: @bryankemp or just take you to good content that you’re expecting or looking for #qrchat #qrcodes
1:42 am BigMikeInAustin: @aldsaur @bryankemp U’d scan the code, it’d open the right web page, but with a unique code for every player. #qrchat
1:43 am aldsaur: @BigMikeInAustin Fun! QR code as means to a game! #QRChat
1:43 am bryankemp: hi @BigMikeInAustin god point. originally qrcodes were a 1 to 1 relationship. thats a wall we really wanted to breakdown. #qrchat
1:44 am bryankemp: so allow me to ask a question. Other than the scan rate, what do you need from QR codes to be effective? #qrchat
1:45 am gnosisarts: @BigMikeInAustin Hey there. Welcome. #qrchat
1:45 am lpsweb: RT @bryankemp: #qrcodes should be spontaneous with a huge reward for taking the time to scan them. #qrchat
1:45 am smartel: Mobile optimized, not only compatible RT @decidedworth: @GnosisArts & @truemc Make sure ur landing page is mobile-friendly #qrchat
1:45 am KyBedard: #QRchat —>Quick question: no use to put QR-codes on your website or in your e-mail newsletter? rumor or truth? (sorry I am an amateur)
1:46 am BigMikeInAustin: @bryankemp A quick way to scan. Now have to get out phone, open app, wait for camera to open, remove glare, focus, take pic, process #qrchat
1:46 am truemc: RT @smartel: Mobile optimized not only compatible RT @decidedworth: @GnosisArts @truemc Make sure ur landing page is mobile-friendly #qrchat
1:47 am bryankemp: I put qrcodes on my personal blog. http://bit.ly/hx6hlY as a means to allow people to read easier. #qrchat
1:47 am smartel: @abovethestatic Don’t forget that qr codes are often used in POS, with more engaging content, before purchase decision @bryankemp #qrchat
1:47 am bryankemp: unfortunately until phone providers build in a faster way, you are stuck to the scanner software. #qrchat
1:48 am aldsaur: Hmm.. gotta check that out RT @bryankemp: Put qrcodes on my personal blog. http://bit.ly/hx6hlY a means 2allow people 2read easier. #qrchat
1:48 am bryankemp: The fastest scanners I have used (unscientific) have been google goggle and red laser. #qrchat
1:48 am DecidedWorth: @bryank@bryankemp Not sure why you put a QR code on a web page, wouldn’t a link be easier for the reader ? #qrchat
1:49 am aldsaur: RT @bryankemp: The fastest scanners I have used (unscientific) have been google goggle and red laser. #qrchat
1:49 am bryankemp: as a quick note, the blog doesn’t have much content but soon may have a raging argument on the nature of twitter #qrchat
1:49 am aldsaur: @DecidedWorth Awesome questions tonight on #qrchat! Thank you!
1:49 am KyBedard: QR-codes are scanned with smart phones? That means URL that the QR-code is linking to should always be optimized for mobile phones? #qrchat
1:50 am DougLanginGR: @bryankemp everyone involved in QR’s needs to help edu everyone else on what they are & how they work #qrchat
1:50 am aldsaur: @KyBedard That is right, but some folks put a non-mobile site behind their QR codes. Big No No #qrchat
1:50 am gnosisarts: We have about 10 mins left. Does anyone have any questions for @bryankemp that haven’t been asked? Don’t want 2 leave any1 out #qrchat
1:50 am bryankemp: qr codes could B scanned by anything, but its safer 2 assume the lowest screen size, unless U cn make the decision 4 the viewer #qrchat
1:51 am DougLanginGR: @kybedard that depends on what the purpose of putting the QR out there is for – does it link to something mobile & useful? #qrchat
1:51 am truemc: Use #QRcodes where you want! RT @KyBedard: #QRchat –>Quick ??: no use to put QR-codes on your website or in your e-mail newsletter?
1:51 am bryankemp: U could use a qr mgmt system lk @My_Codes (when we roll out that release) 2 figure out the browser & send them 2 the correct site. #qrchat

1:52 am reyonman: @DecidedWorth a qr code on a web page could be scanned by a mobile device to be read on the go. easier than typing in the url. #qrchat
1:52 am bryankemp: or your website could figure that out like m.cnn.com #qrchat
1:52 am aldsaur: Nice! RT @bryankemp: U could use a qr mgmt system lk @My_Codes 2 figure out the browser & send them 2 the correct site. #qrchat
1:53 am KyBedard: Hey Allison.TY . amateur here RT @aldsaur That is right, but some folks put a non-mobile site behind their QR codes. Big No No #qrchat

1:53 am QRmedia: RT @DougLanginGR: @bryankemp everyone involved in QR’s needs to help edu everyone else on what they are & how they work #qrchat
1:53 am BigMikeInAustin: Would be cool for qr codes on a vending machine. U can code for drink u want. It charges ur phone bill & releases soda. #qrchat
1:53 am gnosisarts: You should also subscribe to the qrchat blog at https://qrchat.wordpress.com for transcripts and blog posts #qrchat
1:53 am DecidedWorth: @reyonman Ahhhhhh A “Read Me Later Code ” !!! Great idea … #qrchat
1:53 am bryankemp: oh, and I completely agree with @douglangingr about education on qrcodes. #qrchat
1:53 am aldsaur: @KyBedard Welcome! I am an amateur too! Just find QRcodes fascinating! #qrchat
1:54 am KyBedard: @DougLanginGR Good answer Doug. Thanks. I am slowly putting my toes in the QR “stream” #qrchat
1:54 am bryankemp: I am also really turned off by companies that use proprietary scanners for their codes. Let’s keep them open. #qrchat
1:54 am gnosisarts: @QRmedia @DougLanginGR @bryankemp Agreed. Maybe we should organize a qrcode teleclass or webinar of some sort? #qrchat
1:54 am aldsaur: RT @BigMikeInAustin: Wld B cool 4 qr codes on vending machine. U can code 4drink u want. It charges ur phone bill & releases soda. #qrchat
1:55 am aldsaur: @BigMikeInAustin I like that! #qrchat

1:56 am gnosisarts: Just so you know, I’m Eric, your co-host along with Allison (@aldsaur) . QRChat meets Sundays, 9pm ET on Twitter #qrchat
1:56 am AboveTheStatic: @smartel Real world POS or online? Would see latter as distracting from purchase at key point, even if content is great? #qrchat
1:56 am smartel: @bryankemp Last question: what’s your take on Microsoft Tag ? #QrChat
1:56 am truemc: YES! @bryankemp: I am also really turned off by companies that use proprietary scanners for their codes. Let’s keep them open. #qrchat
1:57 am bryankemp: I am really impressed with what some retailers (like Best Buy) who provide links to more info on the products. Brilliant! #qrchat
1:57 am EricaGlasier: @truemc @KyBedard Depends on use of code (site or newsletter use). Contact info, maps, coupons make sense. URLs don’t. #qrchat
1:57 am aldsaur: RT @smartel: @bryankemp Last question: what’s your take on Microsoft Tag ? #QrChat
1:57 am KyBedard: @MargauxPagan @douglanginGR Thanks- Link to a dedicated landing page? relevant info and easy conversions? (link to mobile +useful?) #qrchat
1:58 am QRmedia: RT @DougLanginGR: android: barcode scanner, i-nigma, beetagg, NeoReader, shopsocial – iOS: i-nigma (hands down fastest) & beetagg #qrchat
1:58 am gnosisarts: @EricaGlasier Why do you say links don’t make sense? And welcome back, Erica! We missed you! #qrchat
1:58 am DougLanginGR: RT @aldsaur: @KyBedard That is right, but some folks put a non-mobile site behind their QR codes. Big No No #qrchat
1:58 am KyBedard: @EricaGlasier @truemc That makes sense. #qrchat has been so helpful and responsive.
1:58 am bryankemp: great question. MS TAG. I like that it can hold more data, but the way it is proprietary is hard to swallow. #qrchat
1:59 am KyBedard: so useful >RT @DougLanginGR RT @aldsaur: @KyBedard Thats right, but some folks put non-mobile site behind their QR codes. Big No No #qrchat
1:59 am bryankemp: Technically @My_Codes is not tied 2 qrcodes. We think they R the best physical pointer 2 digital content going, but could use others #qrchat
2:00 am gnosisarts: The only thing I like about MS-Tag: It counts scans even if no further action is taken. Other than than, not much adoption. #qrchat
2:00 am bryankemp: I love #qrcodes and the way tht Denso Wave has been open about their use. Admirable. #qrchat.
2:00 am aldsaur: Interesting! #qrchat RT @bryankemp: Technically @My_Codes is not tied 2 qrcodes. We think they R the best phy? (cont) http://deck.ly/~pFRle
2:00 am reyonman: MS Tag has significantly lower market penetration as well. Should for some reason it became dominant, we could easily switch to it. #qrchat
2:00 am gnosisarts: Well, we’re out of time folks. The formal chat is ended, but feel free to continue chatting during the after party 😉 #qrchat
2:01 am aldsaur: RT @GnosisArts: Well, we’re out of time folks. The formal chat is ended, but feel free 2continue chatting during the after party 😉 #qrchat
2:01 am DougLanginGR: @gnosisarts I’m down to do a webinar or something… #qrchat
2:01 am truemc: @DensoWave is a great! RT @bryankemp: I love #qrcodes and the way tht Denso Wave has been open about their use. Admirable. #qrchat.
2:01 am gnosisarts: Thank you to @bryankemp of @my_codes for sharing his knowledge of #qrcodes with us. #qrchat

2:02 am aldsaur: RT @bryankemp: and please go sign up for the beta. http://mycod.es #qrchat
2:03 am aldsaur: @bryankemp RT @KyBedard: I’m sort of bi-lingual….is QR-code linking to available in different languages? #qrchat
2:03 am DougLanginGR: RT @truemc: YES! @bryankemp: I am also really turned off by co’s that use proprietary scanners 4 their codes. Let’s keep them open. #qrchat
2:03 am gnosisarts: @smartel @douglangingr @bryankemp yes we are all pretty much early-adopters at least in US. I find education the biggest barrier #qrchat
2:03 am bryankemp: the qrcode spec itself allows for 3 types of data. Alphanumeric, numbers and Kanji. so if a url fits text or kanji then yes! #qrchat
2:04 am kmullett: Whoa… first time stopping in on QRChat. I’ve been using them for years. Hi all. #qrchat
2:04 am bryankemp: hey thanks everyone for listening. I really enjoyed the questions. Feel free to contact me anytime. #qrchat
2:05 am gnosisarts: Are there any good #qrcode groups on Linkedin? #qrchat
2:05 am kmullett: @KyBedard i seen the chat because you were in by the way. #qrchat
2:05 am aldsaur: #QRchat participants: I will have the transcript up by tomorrow. Check here: or watch the hashtag http://bit.ly/hGSQg8
2:05 am DecidedWorth: Great conversation tonight – thanks … #qrchat
2:05 am EricaGlasier: @GnosisArts If the link is beneficial to store on your phone for some reason, though, then it can makes sense #qrchat
2:06 am DougLanginGR: @austinvismedia I think its one of those – we’re already a MS shop so we use what MS puts out ’cause its easy (sort-a) #qrchat
2:06 am aldsaur: @kmullett Welcome! We are just finished. Join the after party? Love to have you in the chat nxt wk to hear abt UR uses #qrchat
2:07 am gnosisarts: Thank you to everyone who participated in tonight’s chat. I hope you all will join us next week. #qrchat
2:07 am kmullett: @reyonman I have done a lot of test on MS Tags vs QR Codes. No question they scan easier with more data/density. color+shape #qrchat
2:07 am truemc: Great #qrchat thanks all, back to the beach and pina coladas! Thanks for the great QR code discussion-lot’s of #QRcode knowledge.
2:08 am gnosisarts: RT @aldsaur: I will have the transcript up by tomorrow. Check here: or watch the hashtag http://bit.ly/hGSQg8 #qrchat
2:09 am smartel: @bryankemp Thx to you sir. Hope to see you in the stream. #QrChat And thx @gnosisarts. See u all next Sunday
2:09 am AboveTheStatic: Done. Great #qrchat with insights from @my_codes on sales & usage RT @bryankemp please go sign up for the beta. http://mycod.es
2:09 am gnosisarts: @kmullett the prob is: not as much adoption for the MS-Tags yet #qrchat
2:09 am aldsaur: @GnosisArts @truemc Hmmm Enjoy! #QRChat
2:10 am reyonman: @AustinVisMedia MS Tags require all scan traffic to go through MS. This prevents open toolsets for generation, will hinder adoption #qrchat
2:10 am KyBedard: Thank u sir. Good to see you RT @kmullett i seen the chat because you were in by the way. #qrchat
2:10 am gnosisarts: RT @reyonman: MS Tags require all scan traffic to go through MS. This prevents open toolsets for generation, hinders adoption <- ! #qrchat
2:11 am gnosisarts: @aldsaur Maybe we want to move it to 8pm ET? #qrchat
2:11 am aldsaur: Would love to hear what ppl think of that time! We could poll folks RT @GnosisArts: @aldsaur Maybe we want to move it to 8pm ET? #qrchat
2:12 am DougLanginGR: @kmullett but to what end – QR’s over 4k alpha and over 7k numeric – the biggest draw currently is engaging mobile landing pages #qrchat
2:12 am kmullett: @gnosisarts @reyonman and it was not widely available across other mobile platforms. In 2009 Best Buy was using, then they switched. #qrchat
2:12 am smartel: +1 It’d be better for me at 8pm RT @gnosisarts: @aldsaur Maybe we want to move it to 8pm ET? #qrchat
2:13 am aldsaur: GRT job @bryankemp @reyonman Thank you for a content rich #qrchat! Cc @gnosisarts
2:14 am my_codes: RT @aldsaur: GRT job @bryankemp @reyonman Thank you for a content rich #qrchat! Cc @gnosisarts // my pleasure!
2:14 am DougLanginGR: RT @smartel: +1 It’d be better for me at 8pm RT @gnosisarts: @aldsaur Maybe we want to move it to 8pm ET? #qrchat
2:14 am kmullett: @DougLanginGR I am not a math guy, but 12 by 5 with C M Y K variable. We figured every man, women, child….errr a lot. #qrchat
2:16 am kmullett: @DougLanginGR the other problem is the more data you pack into a QR Code the more difficult it is to scan. (dense) Not so w/MS Tags #qrchat
2:16 am aldsaur: My husband wld appreciate help w/ kid bedtimes RT @GnosisArts: work better for me at 8pm ET, too, lol! #qrchat
2:16 am gnosisarts: Yeah, it would actually work better for me at 8pm ET, too, lol! @aldsaur @smartel. I can do a twtpoll of members #qrchat #qrchat
2:17 am aldsaur: @GnosisArts I say do the twtpoll! #qrchat
2:17 am DougLanginGR: @kmullett rght I agree w the math but from the UX standpoint why do U need 2 encode that much data 4 uses that don’t currently exist #qrchat
2:17 am gnosisarts: @aldsaur ok will do. 🙂 #qrchat
2:21 am kmullett: @DougLanginGR example. Note how dense and small this is > http://bit.ly/ief4aO, because I have MUCH in it. #qrchat
2:22 am reyonman: @aldsaur anytime! #qrchat
2:22 am kmullett: @DougLanginGR an MS Tag will read smaller with more data. Like name, url, contact info, full bio. Necessary info for contact. #qrchat
2:24 am kmullett: @reyonman it depends on what you put into it. More data, more dense + small size = difficult to scan. Poor light increases issue. #qrchat
2:28 am DougLanginGR: @AustinVisMedia Here’s a sample of what’s possible http://rptag.us/hcRh0F #qrchat
2:28 am aldsaur: RT @DougLanginGR: @AustinVisMedia Here’s a sample of what’s possible http://rptag.us/hcRh0F #qrchat
2:29 am ktiedt: @kmullett my reader only showed like 8 numbers… #qrchat
2:30 am reyonman: @kmullett good thing about @my_codes is that only a very small amount of data is stored within the code! : ) #qrchat
2:30 am matt_storms: @DougLanginGR @AustinVisMedia I wrote a whole blog post on QR codes a little bit ago. #qrchat QR codes are awesome.
2:35 am DougLanginGR: @kmullett That’s just poor use of QR technology & is not a best practices – ck this out http://rptag.us/hcRh0F top 1 is my biz card #qrchat
2:37 am DougLanginGR: @matt_storms @AustinVisMedia yes they are! #qrchat
2:38 am reyonman: @kmullett your testing shows MS-Tag performing better in low light? I would assume the higher contrast of qr would win #qrchat
3:07 am laughlinjames: @smartel thanks for showing up for #qrchat tonight.
3:08 am whartwel: Looks like I missed the #qrchat memo. Great conversation – looking forward to next week!
3:32 am cuferg: Sorry to have missed #qrchat, Sunday nights always seem to get away from me.
10:52 am gnosisarts: @JennieB Thanks for stopping into #qrchat last night. Hope you will join us again sometime 🙂
11:04 am AlanLattke: @KyBedard QR codes are language agnostic – like a Barcode they reduce the info you want that is all #qrchat
11:27 am KyBedard: RT @EricaGlasier: @truemc @KyBedard Depends on use of code (site or newsletter use). Contact info, maps, coupons make sense. URLs don’t. #qrchat
11:30 am kristopherwong: Anyways to have a #QRcode be a query to a RDBMS in the cloud? #qrchat
11:32 am KyBedard: Thanks Alan- understanding where iphones fit in RT @AlanLattke QR codes are language agnostic – like Barcode they reduce info u want #qrchat
12:59 pm kristopherwong: @andrewdraper cool. I need to dive into the techy stuff but I wanted to know if it has been done before. The #qrchat group should know.
