Semacode Corporate and Video Game Characters

Yesterday I bumped into Simon Woodside of Semacode Corporation, a fellow young-entrepreneur, who recently announced that this company will be the first tennant of the new Accelerator Centre. Congratulations to him! He definitely seems to be lining up the dominoes for his company’s success. For those of you that don’t know, Simon’s company Semacode has an interesting technology that allows you to snap a picture of two-dimensional barcode with your cellphone, and download information from the URL that it represents. The benefit of reading a semacode vs. a text URL is that a small image can store over 100 characters, wheras a conventional text-url would be unweildy at that length.

Reading Simon’s blog at I came across the fact that if he was a video-game character, he’d be a space-invader. Go figure 😉 Here’s me:

What Video Game Character Are You? I am a Gauntlet Adventurer.I am a Gauntlet Adventurer.

I strive to improve my living conditions by hoarding gold, food, and sometimes keys and potions. I love adventure, fighting, and particularly winning – especially when there’s a prize at stake. I occasionally get lost inside buildings and can’t find the exit. I need food badly. What Video Game Character Are You?
