Death may be permanent, but headstones are always changing.

David Quiring, the Seattle owner of a headstone shop, sells a $75 service that lets families set up websites devoted to their dearly departed. Those can be accessed by scanning QR-code stickers on tombstones. He ends up having to explain what a QR code is to every customer, and less than 30 percent of them buy the sticker, he says. “I’ve been trying to continue the move forward by actually bringing monuments into the 21st century,” he says. “Nobody knows this technology is out there.” (via Technology - Alexis Madrigal - Finally, You Can Have a QR Code on Your Headstone - The Atlantic)
