I didn't either but here's the deal

That little graphic is called a QR(stands for Quick Response). It's also known as a 2-D bar code. For people with smartphones, you can download apps that read this graphic and translate it into text. It is similar to an old school bar code, but it has much more information embedded than a regular bar code.

For example I have an iphone and there is a free app called "RedLaser" that can scan barcodes and QRs, and returns information about what it scanned.

So in essence, you can make a small message, "encode" it into one of these little graphics, and put them in places. For example, on little stickers that you can stick onto sugar packets at a restaurant. Then when other people sit at that table and use the sugar, if they notice the graphic they can scan it with their smart phone, and see the message. It's pretty neat. More and more products at stores are having these graphics on their product labels, and customers can scan them and it takes them to websites that further describe the product.

This is the same thing, but when people scan the graphic it gives them a little pro-Ron Paul message :)

I hope that helps!
