Scanning homeless people because you obviously only want to give to the “deserving poor” plus you never have any cash and withdrawing some would be a total hassle

Big Issue’s probably the exact sort of organisation that will be able to do it successfully - big infrastructure behind them and also each individual vendor operates as a de facto sole trader don’t they so makes sense for them to be made available to sellers and then they can individually choose whether to front up the extra for them.

If I was the British Legion I would also be looking to roll this out as quickly as possible for the Poppy Appeal.

the cost of rent, utilities etc would just double. It would be like player sales when the premier league came into mega money

Yeah it would have to go hand in hand with socialism

Nothing has ever been made better by adding QR codes

I liked it when they first became THE THING about 8 years ago and you’d occasionally see an advert on a tube platform with one on it.

I mean if you don’t want your marketing budget lads you can just give it to me instead, that’s fine.

Tagging m&e assets has made it better

Penoid tournaments have a stupid system where you find out who you’re playing by crowding round a printed list at the beginning of every round. It’s a faff.

At some tournaments they’re being replaced by a big QR code at the beginning of round one that takes you to an online list of pairings that gets updated each round. It is a huge improvement.

No advertising idiot has ever made a more stupid decision than putting a QR code on the Tube.

I replace people with process and tech. I hate it but money

My political allegiances don’t fit my job

£50k a year plus car and benefits though so…

At least you’ve got actual skin in the game bud, I’ll give you that

Bit rich coming from a book seller. Stone carvers all lost their job due to the invention of the printing press.

If you thought bookmark attack was bad you ain’t seen nothing yet

christ this is terrible!

there’s a bit in the video where they scan the guy and a little bio of him comes up like what the actual fuck?!?!

“sorry mate I’ve just scanned you and it says you’re an alcoholic so I’m not giving you any money”

…this is actually going to happen eventually if humanity survives long enough though isn’t it
