Now write down a sentence in QR code
Without looking things up or using a ruler or a mask to fill in "letters".
And an alphabet readable by only 1/(infinite) people of the universe is not so useful.
And QR code would change that?
Why encode an already working alphabet behind another
layer of rules which have nothing
to do with linguistics?
I don't want QR code in LT or as a future of our written language, it's far too ugly. It was just an example of existing and perhaps futurist written language that don't respect "standard" shapes.
It's a natural evolution to adapt our usage : computers that communicates with computers, and (modified) human as a end point.
What will be the usage in year 3000? I really think hand written will disapear, people will not "write down a sentence" any more.

Why QR codes ?
Why ASCII , hexadecimal or binary ?
Why .epub, .txt, .doc ?
Why Braille ?
It's not linguistic, it's adaptation to usages.
An ebook is not any more stored as an alphabet but as a computer file format. It's just displayed to the end user as an alphabet.
