047267E4-437F-4E31-8A93-EB22454AEE33.jpg You’ve all seen them before on your mail and packages. They are starting to turn up all over the place. It’s also becoming a much more complicated landscape. There are more and more types of 2D barcodes appearing all the time. Some that look like black and white static and others that look more like crop circles. They are no longer limited to just black & white either.

Microsoft has recently introduced their own version that they call the High Capacity Color Barcode. This version has both a 4 color and 8 color version that offer a much more data storage. F184F3C6-1C05-42B9-908D-1C2F8D86F5E5.jpg

There are more and more types of two-dimensional matrix barcode appearing all the time. The majority of them are consisting of black and white square modules arranged in either a square or rectangular pattern, unhealthy which gives them that television static look. They are however no longer limited to just black & white or square in shape. There are others that look more like crop circles, some that actually have pictures in them and some based on color triangles.

An interesting aspect to the High Capacity Color Barcode is that is supports RSA signatures. With it’s long list of features and data density it’s your best option for actually storing information that needs to be physically printed on a surface. The only challenge with Microsoft’s solution is that there isn’t any easy way to use them yet. As of this time there are no public readers available for cell phones or online.

7F9988A1-FE11-4C70-8978-51B4EC3653C2.jpgHowever with today’s always online technology and readers based in cellphone, I’m personally interested in ShotCode’s solution. They are focusing on mobile tagging that work sort of like a TinyURL in that they only contain a link to a URL. To use a ShotCode you can use generate one for free on their site. To decode you can Download a ShotCode mobile barcode reader from their site or choose from a few option for the iPhone from the App store.

It’s interesting to see how these codes are starting to take off in general use. The site Semapedia is all about creating links between real world objects and Wikipedia. On their site you can enter in the Wikipedia URLs and create a DIY printable sticker sheet, that you can then go and tag objects with. Everyone should go and create some and stick them on stuff.

The QR Codes seem to have become the most used in advertising right now thanks to their success in Japan. It’s the code that I myself have noticed more and more in public spaces and adds.

So which one is the best? For me it’s the one that is easiest and cheapest to create and scan back in. For that I’m leaning on the QR Code at the top of the list followed by DataMatrix and the ShotCode. I’m interested in using the HCCB, but will have to wait.

Here’s a little sample of some of the matrix codes I could find:

There are more and more types of two-dimensional matrix barcode appearing all the time. The majority of them are consisting of black and white square modules arranged in either a square or rectangular pattern, check which gives them that television static look. They are however no longer limited to just black & white or square in shape. There are others that look more like crop circles, viagra some that actually have pictures in them and some based on color triangles.

Microsoft has introduced their own version that they call the High Capacity Color Barcode. This version has both a 4 color and 8 color version that offer a much more data storage.
F184F3C6-1C05-42B9-908D-1C2F8D86F5E5.jpg
An interesting aspect to the High Capacity Color Barcode is that is supports RSA signatures. With it’s long list of features and data density it’s your best option for actually storing information that needs to be physically printed on a surface. The only challenge with Microsoft’s solution is that there isn’t any easy way to use them yet. As of this time there are no public readers available for cell phones or online.

7F9988A1-FE11-4C70-8978-51B4EC3653C2.jpgHowever with today’s always online technology and readers based in cellphone, I’m personally interested in ShotCode’s solution. They are focusing on mobile tagging that work sort of like a TinyURL in that they only contain a link to a URL. To use a ShotCode you can use generate one for free on their site. To decode you can Download a ShotCode mobile barcode reader from their site or choose from a few option for the iPhone from the App store.

It’s interesting to see how these codes are starting to take off in general use. The site Semapedia is all about creating links between real world objects and Wikipedia. On their site you can enter in the Wikipedia URLs and create a DIY printable sticker sheet, that you can then go and tag objects with. Everyone should go and create some and stick them on stuff.

The QR Codes seem to have become the most used in advertising right now thanks to their success in Japan. It’s the code that I myself have noticed more and more in public spaces and adds.

The majority of them are consisting of black and white square modules arranged in either a square or rectangular pattern, check which gives them that television static look. They are however no longer limited to just black & white or square in shape. There are others that look more like crop circles, viagra some that actually have pictures in them and some based on color triangles.

Microsoft has introduced their own version that they call the High Capacity Color Barcode. This version has both a 4 color and 8 color version that offer a much more data storage.

An interesting aspect to the High Capacity Color Barcode is that is supports RSA signatures. With it’s long list of features and data density it’s your best option for actually storing information that needs to be physically printed on a surface. The only challenge with Microsoft’s solution is that there isn’t any easy way to use them yet. As of this time there are no public readers available for cell phones or online.

7F9988A1-FE11-4C70-8978-51B4EC3653C2.jpgHowever with today’s always online technology and readers based in cellphone, I’m personally interested in ShotCode’s solution. They are focusing on mobile tagging that work sort of like a TinyURL in that they only contain a link to a URL. To use a ShotCode you can use generate one for free on their site. To decode you can Download a ShotCode mobile barcode reader from their site or choose from a few option for the iPhone from the App store.

It’s interesting to see how these codes are starting to take off in general use. The site Semapedia is all about creating links between real world objects and Wikipedia. On their site you can enter in the Wikipedia URLs and create a DIY printable sticker sheet, that you can then go and tag objects with. Everyone should go and create some and stick them on stuff.

The QR Codes seem to have become the most used in advertising right now thanks to their success in Japan. It’s the code that I myself have noticed more and more in public spaces and adds.

So which one is the best? For me it’s the one that is easiest and cheapest to create and scan back in. For that I’m leaning on the QR Code at the top of the list followed by DataMatrix and the ShotCode. I’m interested in using the HCCB, but will have to wait.

Here’s a little sample of some of the matrix codes I could find:

There are two excellent Silverlight 2.0 books now on the market:

If anyone out there has any recommendations let me know and I’ll update the list.

Up to date books from O’Reilly

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

2512159922_f5fa552a18 I picked up the Essential Silverlight 2.0 book while I was at the Web 2.0 Expo.  I’ve been meaning to share.  It’s the first time I’ve purchased an “Up To Date” book from O’Reilly.  I’m waiting form my first update to come in the mail.

To update your book you have the  option to print out the pages or view them online for free, adiposity but I like the idea of updating the book itself. 

To put in the new pages all you have to do is pop the little metal posts out from the plastic cover then add in the pages.

The idea behind O’Reilly’s “Up To Date” books

For publishers of printed technology books, stuff it’s always been challenging to get a book written, edited, printed, and delivered while the content of the book is still relevant and needed by the audience. Some of our readers are happy to have the information they need delivered quickly in electronic form, but we hear from others that they still prefer the actual printed page. The Up-to-Date format is our answer to the need to deliver information on new technologies quickly, yet in printed form. And the beauty of it is that the book can take shape right along with the software, providing coverage of the CTPs, betas, and RTM releases as they become available.

Because the cover is plastic I have noticed a small issue in that the printing seems to flake off from the cover.  Hopefully they find a way to fix this in future version.  Of course I’d be super happy if they had a version that would work on my Sony Reader too.

Oh, and the book is very good too, but that’s another post!

Just got the third version of the Polar Bear book from Roy C.. Thank you! I have on my shelf the first and second editions.

  • the first edition is 189 pages
  • the second edition 440 pages
  • the third edition 486 pages

So why is the second edition so huge? Heavy paper! The copy I have is printed on some deluxe heavy weight paper.

I’m happy to have the new longer and lighter version of the book.
