Bar codes on cameras

World-readable

Ooh, that sounds like it might work. The amusing part is that one's camera is far more capable and expensive than a barcode reader, but cheaper for me (and most of the technical elite) because I already have a camera. I'll have to investigate that possibility next time I get bored.

Having rejected DOS, we're paranoid about anything that isn't
"user-friendly," that requires some adjustment on our part and a
commitment to meet the technology halfway. It's as if Henry Ford rigged
a bridle and set of leather reins to his Model T instead of a steering
wheel and clutch, and to this day we were still driving our cars the way
a 19th century groomsman would handle a horse and buggy.
