33 · Robert Schekley's Blacklight Barcode Ballet

This week, in “Immortality, Inc.", by Robert Scheckley:  In an alternate universe where the :CueCat became a success and this absurd device became essential for everyday life, replacing the written word with diagonal barcodes, the inventor of the QR code goes on the run to protect her invention from the Barcode Hegemony and ushers the Information Age into the second dimension. K looks forward to life returning to 'normal'. Khaki turns the tables and ruffles some feathers. Find CoverMyAssCast on Twitter, Gmail and www.covermyasscast.com.
