An email from FourSquare this morning reminded me what I was doing a year ago today.
I spent the morning at The British Museum doing the first public experiments with QRpedia.
This is a video of the historic occaision.
So, here's a quick run down of what this volunteer-lead project has acheived in a single year, in no particular order:
- Derby Museum installation
- UK National Archives installation
- The Children's Museum of Indianapolis installation
- Sofia Zoo installation
- Juan Miro installation
- Monmouthpedia - covering Monmouth with hundreds of QRpedia codes
- Over 42,000 scans of the codes
- Named one of the top four most innovative mobile companies in the UK
- Become part of the "Occupy" movement
- Received scans from over 100 different countries
Wow! What a ride! From a few comments on Wikipedia and blogs, to project launch, to global domination 🙂 QRpedia really emphasises what a team of commited volunteers can do if they work together.
I'll be demoing QRpedia at Museums Showoff on April 25th in Camden.
