Al Franken, the QR Code

BY Nancy Scola | Monday, March 14 2011

Spotted by Shaun Dakin during SXSW Interactive this weekend was a QR code in the main program placed there by Sen. Al Franken. [Not sure what a QR code is? Here.] Shaun reports that, when scanned, the code links to an online pledge tied to Franken's talk today on the future of the open Internet.

Update: Turns out you can go ahead and watch Franken's talk live via the Uptake here, at 10:30 east coast time today.
