High-Tech Meets the Macabreby Stella Royce on 04/18/12
I just read on Mashables where a monument company using QR Codes on a tombstone. See attached article here http://mashable.com/2011/07/15/qr-code-tombstone/#
I have to admit at first I was creeped out by it but that didn't last long! I immediately put myself at the graveside of a very dear friend that passed in 2007 and while there I had spent a considerable amount of time tending to his grave, watering the flowers and just remembering him. When I returned home I looked at some of the photos and remembered all the great times we had. And now I think WOW this is a really great idea. If I had the chance to relive some of the memories we had and those of others who knew him I really would!
As it stands right now I have my QR Code Reader right on the front page of my phone for easy access. I use it constantly to gather information on the fly and refer back to the sites when I have a free moment. But to actually enjoy the memories and time spent with someone, to gain new insights on how they affected others (with continued updates! Now That is COOL!) that is just an incredible way to relive time and memories I spent with someone I really enjoyed - not to mention the knowledge and history my daughter would gain from hearing stories and seeing pictures of my grandmother who raised me.
Thinking now of my father (trying not to get too creepy here) I would love to do this for our family. Makes me think of the movie "Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead" - After Life Advise was the business Andy Garcia's character was working at developing.
You gotta wonder - Could my children get some advice from the past???
