Chew bubble gum and kick ass

When I see these QR Code squares, I recall a time when such ideology technologies were objects of deep paranoia. The master, John Carpenter, made that wonderful film, They Live, about encoded messages to consume and obey that were hidden and required special sunglasses to discern. Today, we no longer want Rowdy Roddy Piper to show up to chew bubble gum and kick ass (and to be out of bubble gum). Today, instead of sunglasses, we iPad our vision to enjoy the warm hailing embrace of these QR invitations.
