Moblile Tagging

Through the use of smartphones, the future of communication is finally here in Mobile Tagging. After a hiatus from Western culture (due to the global recession), mobile tagging is starting to show itself in different forms (Microsoft Tag, QR Code, JagTag, AT&T, etc.) through different mediums and places (magazines, tourist locations, inventory tracking, food, etc.). Tags are two-dimensional barcodes that can be scanned in the physical world in order to provide more information on a subject that has piqued your curiosity. That is to say, it is a link between our analogous and digital worlds. I believe that this new technology has enormous potential and will be quite disruptive (in a good way) in the mobile community. What do you guys think?

  1. I think smart phones are over-rated, data plans are way too expensive (especially in comparison to much higher bandwidth wired connections) and that people should consider "unplugging", going outside and spending some time in the sun...

  2. Any "tagging" should remain within the organization itself. It can be only disruptive (in a negative way, as if a disruption can be positive?)if used inappropriately. No cross-organization tagging outside of social entities should occur.

    Ed -- I do believe that there are many uses within an organization for tagging (e.g. inventory tracking, name badges, etc.) but there are so many other uses for this technology. What use would you consider for tagging in social entities?

    For the record -- disruptive technologies: those that re-define the existing technological frontier through their own innovations.

    Alt. definition: an innovation that helps create a new market and value network, and eventually goes on to disrupt an existing market and value network (over a few years or decades), displacing an earlier technology there.

    (I would think the advancement of technology is disruptive . . . "in a good way").
