The Little-Known Story of the Birth of the QR Code, how go inspired the inventor of the QR codes:


We saw the article on other social media, yeah, nice to have it here, too. The article was, of course, aimed at curious QR users, not go players. Still, I wish the interviewer had spent more time diving into the go aspect.

It looks like Japanese go has returned the compliment. Nihon Ki-in publications have just started using QR codes as a way of calling up game records so as to replay them.
