CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) is holding a contest in collaboration with Rogers Wireless that uses the ScanLife Lotto codes. Details of the competition:

"The Contest Period starts at 12.00 on AUGUST 21 2009 and continues until SEPTEMBER 7, 2009 during open hours of the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto, Ontario ("CNE"). No purchase necessary. All times herein are Eastern Times."

To enter, visit the Rogers booth at the CNE during the Contest Period and identify yourself with a Rogers representative to receive instructions how to participate in the Contest. Using the demo BlackBerry® Javelin™ 8900 enabled with the Scanlife software, take a picture of the code as instructed and an instant message will appear on the device confirming if you are potential instant winners ("Entry"). Limit of one (1) Entry per person during the Contest Period.

More details on the contest :

This is an innovative use of 2D codes in events. I see 2D codes used a lot more in promotions in the events.

Startuply: Startup Jobs

Once you have worked in a startup, I guess you always want to work in a Start up. Came accross this interesting site that posts jobs only in Start ups. Statuply provides jobs listing only from Startups and in a very starting up look and feel.

The Company details page provides the goals, products and team information. The thing I like the most about the site is that it lists two very important things about the Startup that a job seeker must consider in a startup : "Funding" and "Current Team size".
