Good question.

First off, I really like the QR's design.  From color to insertion of
graphic: distinctive and still functional.  Tip of the hat.  But...

This particular QR points to the download page of LO.  Maybe I'm alone in
this but:

   1. I've always, only scanned a QR w/my mobile device
   2. The only software downloads via QR were specific to the mobile device

Expectation is pretty important wrt QR's.  Based on that, for QR's I
generate, I've taken to:

   - Adding one-line captions alerting where the QR leads
   - The QR's always lead to mobile-appropriate urls (which must add value
   - not teasers)

I can see fringe cases where scanning the download linky to my mobile might
be advantageous.  Otherwise, I'm missing something.

All that aside, Simon, thanks again for showing an aesthetically
distinctive & appealing QR code.  No small trick!  ;-)

What can we do with it, really?
I do not think my smart phone can deal with these things.  I use a LG-500
prepaid with limited online abilities.

I never really know what such a icon is used for.  Some "demos" tell you
to take a picture of the icon and it will go to a screen showing you where
the item is in the store.  Another "demo commercial" had you take a picture
of the icon and you bought the item and you just had to type in your card
number and billing/shipping address.

SO what would LO user do with the icon?
Or is it just a cute graphic?

I'd love to see an (artistic) QR-Code that features the paperclip logo
as part of the code...
(or failing having an artistic version, a plain one...)

Excellent - I like the icon in the center.

Jogged the memory also - did something with QR-Code (hmm, not sure who
actually generated the code bit..) as part of a flyer layout last year:

Thinking might be worth it to take the design you did for the code and
re-craft a new general use, fund raising oriented perhaps, 2012 flyer,
or even a campaign (flyer (for print), video, presentation page for
members to use as lead/trailer when giving talks (though I have no real
knowledge that works...I suppose it does) all with a common look.

What do you think?

Best wishes,
