Barnaby Jeans Contact Info Tag (vCard)
I have just found a very cool new application on the Microsoft site called Microsoft Tags (http://www.microsoft.com/tags).  Basically what this does is allow you to encode either a vCard, a URL, or a phone number into a 2D image that can then be read and decoded with a camera phone.

If you visit http://gettag.mobi from your mobile phone (including Blackberry and Android) you’ll be able to download the reader that will decode this file and provide you with my vCard.  For iPhone users you can visit the App Store and download Tag Reader.

If you want my work contact info, all you need to do is scan.  I may just have to include one of these on my next business cards.
