QR Code found in the Wild

I've been interested in QR codes for a while now. This is the first one I've seen live. It's in San Diego.

what did it do when you zapped it with your QR code reader?

I used QuickMark and I didn't even need to "take a picture" the way other decoders make you. I just launched the app, then launched the phone from QuickMark and as soon as it recognized the code in the frame of the camera it immediately launched a URL in the safari browser on my iPhone.
The experience was exactly what I have been expecting for the last couple years.
I was beginning to think this technology was going to die, but after experiencing it first hand...finally...I think it still can be a cool thing.

I've tried to scan the code using Kaywa reader as I'm now intrigued what the QR code actually does but no joy. What does it do/point at?
