BeeReader is a QR Code reader for Palm

BeeReader is a new QR Code (or Semacode) format that has alot going for it right now. It reads QR and DataMatrix codes and has it's own format that can scan from about 3 feet on a computer monitor. (BTW, that's impressive.)

It's internal format supports URLs, feeds and contact info from it's web builder, and has pretty tight integration (at least on the Palm OS) to the Web browser and contact tools.

Memes, Rats and such...

I seem to be pretty attracted to the idea of memes. A quick wiki-definition for those of you not familiar with the internets...

The word meme (pronounced /miːm/)[1] is a popular neologism denoting any learned thought, feeling, or behavior. Examples include thoughts, ideas, theories, practices, habits, songs, dances and moods. Memes propagate themselves and can move through a "culture" in a manner similar to the behavior of a virus. As a unit of cultural evolution, a meme in some ways resembles a gene.

I stumbled across a interesting new meme that I think is incredibly funny. Take a look at GraphJam...


So my idea is to take the various memes out there and apply them to my meme-mock site LolRats.com. (Believe me, photoshopping rats gets old real quick.)
