Off the Wall Post Poster by Timothy Winchester (People I Know)

Off The Wall Post are huge fans of creators and people who make the internet a better place. Timothy Winchester is one of those people. People I know is a wonderful, quirky web comic that’s been bringing joy to readers for years. Timothy joins Dan, Barry and Kat to talk about his hobby-turned-bedroom industry that moves between the internet and hard copy sales across the world. AND present us with his awesome depiction of the Off The Wall Post team!

A glorious and glossy print copy of the Timothy Winchester Off The Wall Poster you see above is this week’s OTWP prize. So keep your eyes peeled for updates of how to win on our Twitter and Facebook Page.

Listen to the podcast now – just press play:

Thankfully, Kat returns to the podcast this week, and so inevitably does talk of Google – this time Google’s browser history-inferred information it uses to feed you its targeted ads. We look into Google’s Ads Preferences Manager and reveal Kat’s true age!

Barry discovers a QR code application that DOESN’T suck – although that depends on whether you advocate innovative Turkish football fans abusing opposing teams at a match… While other QRs-holes are discovered in the shape of Bromley footballers (not Barnet – though that would have made more sense) shaving QR codes into their heads. And the curious / ridiculous tale of Justinsomnia.org’s QR code being misused across the world by advertisers – leading to huge traffic spikes to his site!

Dan gets Shazam happy about the increased use of the audio recognition and tagging app in TV advertising.
