QRpedia's Name

There is some confusion about QRpedia's name.

The answer is very simple. The "pedia" isn't from "Encyclopedia". It isn't from "Wikipedia". It's an acronym.

  • P - Potentially
  • E - Every
  • D - Device
  • I - Interlanguage
  • A - Access

The "QR", of course, standing for "Quick Response".

I hope that clears up the matter 😉

One thought on “QRpedia in Russia

  1. To clarify; the above is a humorous backronym.

    The "pedia" comes from "Wikipedia" - which, itself, derives from Encyclopedia.

    This is because, currently, QRpedia only works with Wikipedia. There are plans to make it work with other data-sources, but that's some way off.
