QR Code

The above barcode is a 2D version called a QR code, invented and popular in Japan.

This particular code contains my business card contact info, which I generated at http://zxing.appspot.com/generator/

Next, I'm printing up some business cards with this on the back (I heard that uprinting.com was giving away 1,000 free cards...we'll see).  Many of the newer mobile phones have a reader so you can scan a card and quickly add it to your contact database.  I just downloaded this one to try it out:  http://www.beetagg.com/

Anything to minimize carpal tunnel.  I already switched to left-handed mousing to ease the wear-and-tear on my right.
