I am new to QR codes. What is supposed to happen with these? when I click it just goes to the flickr page. I see the wordpress url in the image but it is not clickable.
It is too much to type a long string.

Spoiler Alert!

an ARG is an Alternate Reality Game!

That is what is known as a "rabbithole."

The first clue. So intrigued works...

as far as how to answer the question - it's the red pill v. blue pill question.

It you answer, you go down the rabbithole, if you don't then you stay where you are.

QR Codes - QR Codes Explained by Common Craft
( I love Common Craft)

and for people who prefer text QR codes by Albertson Library at Boise State University

Additional article on QR codes for education
QR Codes in Education

So it does require a mobile device with a smart phone to use.

If not there is a link .....but since it is an ARG - the idea is to have you play with the clues as they might come back.... at bit later.

Here's some additional info to have you take a look. It is wikipedia but they do have it right.

I should have been clearer. I had a general sense of them but no tool to decode. I downloaded a tool for my phone. The code for edison decoded but telsa would not decode. Can you share a link?

I also tried the telsa site QR in two online decoders. all fail. Is that supposed to be part of the game? I see the link in the image but It's too long to bother typing in.

The link showing on the telsa QR code is lqhylwdeohehwudbo.wordpress.com It is missing a letter. dbo at the end should be dbdo
This link works for Telsa
http://lqhylwdeohehwudbdo.wordpress.com/
And here is edison
http://frjqlwlyhglvvrqdqfh.wordpress.com/

Now that I get to the start page I see that it wants to know what grade I teach and what institution. I dont teach in a school I am in the organizational training world. Is it exclusive to teachers?
