I think the point is that the organizers need to be aware that not 
everyone has a cellphone, let alone a cellphone that supports reading QR 
codes.  So if you are going to *need* to have a QR code reading capable 
mobile device to experience the conference to it's fullest, then some 
people (myself included) are going to miss out.

I don't really care if you use them or not, just make sure that luddites 
like myself can still access everything we need to be able to access, 
even if it requires some extra key strokes.
