Here is a cool thing. A 2 dimensional barcode can be used to encode small amounts of data, like URLs of websites. People with the right software on their camera phones can read these barcodes and extract the URLs. The barcodes even look nice, so they can be put on our posters. This one points to our homepage.

Source code for generating these data matrices
