RKT's : Top Ten plus tax - Tech Tools for the Trenches...

I invite you to consider the following links of tech tools that I have used in the trenches in an Alternative / Non-Traditional and Traditional setting.

These links have transformed the way I personally & professionally have utilized the brilliant opportunities that the world wide web has to offer.

Going from being overwhelmed to technology with purpose.

May they empower you to grow in your personal and professional life of the digital world.

Q.R. Code

QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode) first designed for the automotive industry in Japan. A barcode is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached. A QR code uses four standardized encoding modes (numeric, alphanumeric, byte / binary, and kanji) to efficiently store data; extensions may also be used.
