52 Comms Mixup video 8 (BlogWorld edition): Tim Hayden

52 Comms Mix Up, In-depth

Tim Hayden of 44 Doors sees a future for QR Codes. But only as they evolve over the next three to five years. Agree?










This is the second in a week-long series of posts recapping the Blogworld NYC experience. What I learned, who I met, how I’m planning to apply it all to my day job.

Every time I go to a conference, there is always session I miss that I wish I had seen based on the tweets coming out of it. At BlogWorld last week, that was Tim Hayden’s session on mobile. So because I missed it and because I had like 100 people tell me I need to meet this guy, I tracked down Tim after his session to join us for #52CommsMixup.

We talked about social and mobile — how they’re different and how they work together. We talked about QR codes. I’m a huge skeptic, but Tim laid out some interesting options on the future of this technology, how it may evolve and when it might become mainstream. We talked about the Texas Longhorns. Tim married into what he calls a burnt orange blood transfusion :) . And then we talked about the amazing work Tim is doing with the Austin chapter of Meals on Wheels.

Check out our conversation here and make sure to connect with Tim at 44Doors.com and @TheTimHayden.



  • In your presentation, you say mobile is different than social. Yet the two are wildly interdependent. Can you explain to us what you meant by that?
  • I know you are a fan of QR codes. What do you see as the future of this technology? Where do we go from here?
  • You said you married into a burnt orange blood transfusion :) . Talk to me about your connection with the Texas Longhorns.
  • The last question is always reserved for you to tell us about a cause you care a lot about. What’s your passion?
