Barcode Library

Thanks to Android's Barcode Scanner application I now have a record of every Wii, GC, PS2, and DS game, every movie, and almost every book that I own. The only thing left to do is find a way to associate each UPC or ISBN code with the rest of its information for human-friendly consumption. I'm of two minds about publishing that kind of information, though.

On the one hand I think it would be neat. It would be a start on creating a list of X that I've played/read/watched/etc. It would be useful for comparing notes and possibly as conversation topics. Lastly, it would also be useful to give friends an idea what items they could borrow.

On the other hand, it would be revealing a lot of information to the general public. It could potentially paint me as a target of opportunity for robbery. I don't think that's all that likely, but it's still something that concerns me.

I wouldn't have to publish the full list to the general public to get some use out of it, though. At the very least it'll be good to keep a personal record in case something happens (a fire, etc). It would also be useful to selectively show it to friends so they know what movies I have, or whatever.
