Needlebase: Fun with UPC


What is it?
Long story short: the other day I was playing with an iPhone app that interprets and stores UPC codes via camera input.

Why is this interesting?
Open Library dot org robots dot txt

Where is it going in the future?
Sounds like a really easy way to built a library catalog from scratch. Not saying I invented copy cataloging or anything, just a new way to approach the idea. Eventually I'll figure out the Amazon Web Services API and this will get even more interesting.
