  1. I’ve never been a fan of QR codes. They probably should’ve been more successful but everyone jumped on the bandwagon to place them on products, ads, etc. but when you scan them, they take you to a homepage. If they had been better executed in the past, maybe people would actually use them.

  2. Is there any way to subscribe to this podcast? I keep missing it for lack of an obvious RSS feed! Please let me know.

      Philippa, we should be set up in iTunes sometime soon. I believe you may be able to add to itunes manually by clicking “advance” –> “Subscribe to podcast” and enter the RSS feed: New episodes should show up when we publish.

      Thanks for listening!
