WE HEAR: One staffer for Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) is awfully excited about a new high-tech addition that lies right outside the congresswoman’s door in the Cannon House Office Building.
Eshoo, who represents Silicon Valley, just installed a QR code on the nameplate outside her office. Snapping a photo of the code on a smartphone sends visitors to her congressional website.
In the note, the aide suggests, “You should all make a QR code for your office! Your office will look so tech-savvy.”
The email contains a link so other House offices can create their own codes. It even adds a little bit of lighthearted peer pressure, with the inspired staffer writing, “It’s easy to do and all the cool kids are doing it.”
