Spell Qaddafi right.
In the pilot episode of NBC’s West Wing, White House Chief of Staff Leo McGarry calls the editor of the New York Times crossword puzzle to correct the spelling of Qaddafi’s name. Unfortunately, the Times hangs up on him before McGarry reveals his correct version,
17-across is wrong … You’re spelling his name wrong … What’s my name? My name doesn’t matter. I’m just an ordinary citizen who relies on the Times crossword for stimulation. And I’m telling you that I’ve met the man twice, and I’ve recommended a preemptive Exocet missle strike against his airforce so I think I know how … They hang up on me every time.
I totally don’t get QR codes. Actually I get them. Especially in this example. But it’s more like I have not made myself get with the program and install an app to do this. So instead i just see these symbols everywhere and feel confused. Story of my life.
Social sharing, via QR
This Sunday, The Washington Post did a twist on the old QR codes we’ve been putting in the paper. Instead of sending our weekend readers to more Web content or features from a quick QR scan, we sent them straight to a Facebook sharing link. The idea was to pick a story that we thought readers of the Sunday printed product would want to share in the moment. We used Eli Saslow’s piece on a Somali American man whose nephew joined the extremist al-Shabab group, and who now tries to keep others from the lure of jihad. Our logic in launching this was simple: It’s Sunday, we know you’re busy and might never get to your desktop computer to share this. But perhaps you’ve got your smartphone handy to scan a QR code.
