EBAY's: A QR Coded Holiday

Ebay has launched a new holiday based advertising and marketing campaign to incorporate innovative quick response QR codes.  This bold move and clever usage, as a gift ribbon design, takes the codes in a new creative direction, instead of the standard corner ad placement.
So, I know what you may be thinking... as Ecowarrior2012 (EW12)  follower why... should I really care?
Great question and though some may disagree with my answers. QR codes help consumers quickly and efficiently research and purchase items directly from their smart phones or tablets, once scanned.  I am all for supporting local shopping, especially at the holidays. Ebay now has millions of people selling reused items and reducing new product consumption, quite green actually.  The carbon footprints of shipping these "used" items is only a tiny fraction of what it costs us all, when buying new products. Now EW12 realizes that there are many new products sold on Ebay, still shipping from online purchases is more sustainable than one driving to and from multiple stores, as the packages ride mass transit in a way.
So I say go ahead and try to scan the new QRs with your smart phone and just make sure you are investing in good products that are truly needed. There is nothing cooler over the crazy holiday period than conscious consumerism!
Thanks for reading and sharing,

The Occupy Movement is the 2012 Transformation!

Lately with the increased interest in the @occupyoakland via the @OccupyWallSt movement  the globe is certainly starting to unify to rise up against corporate greed, mistrust and PEOPLE really do have the POWER!

The 99% People's movement has taken hold across the globe and we are unifying together for a more fair, just and morally equal world... one were greed and mistrust are not accepted. 

The public has been sold a fat lie, a grand illusion... one were we must trust the main powers that ruin the world.  We can no longer, trust them inherently... they know exactly how to work the system for their advantages, while we the people pay the consequences for it all.

President Obama got us all fired up with his Hope movement and then he has since caved into the massive pressures in DC, since he alone could never change all these issues.  He asked us to get involved and we did our part.  Then the gov't stepped in to save the greediest bastards of them all and we lost trust while the economy faultered based on more lies and mistrust of our systems in place.  We have an integrity issue in this country and hence dealing with a breakdown!

The Mayan 2012 prophecy is for global transformational change, a shift in consciousness across all of humanity for what is just, fair and represents equality for us all.  We will have to step through this fire over to the other side and make this happen, and we are!

The recent small riots in @occupyoakland movement show the anger and simply some anarchists actions mostly... but it wakes up the sleepy, the complacent and makes us all take notice.  We have been shoved aside, pushed down and now taken advantage of... and we ain't gonna take it no longer!

Viva La Revolucion!
