QR Coding Jump to Story

If you've ever seen QR Codes, those square 2D barcodes with the funny square/dots in the corners, then you'll know what Ecin Krispie was recently working on. He posted a bit about decoding QR Codes using Ruby, although found that there were no good, native decoders available and had to resort to JRuby to use some of the Java libraries already available. If you know of a good decoder (not just encoder!) or even a good image processing library for MRI, please let us know in the show notes.
