No other details filled in, but it appears that the process works fine right off a computer monitor image of your "bar code"...

...and of course this means that you can post it on your website, on your Facebook homepage, at your BlackberryForums avatar, and send it to somebody in an email.... I imagine you could wind up with a zillion anonymous BBM "buddies" in record time this way...
Very cool feature, just scan the pic and new contact added...
Must add that there is the option to save your barcode as .png in your media card, that way you don't need any other software to take snapshots to publish it in any page.
