Let me rephrase, now that I had some coffee and some time to think...

My knee jerk reaction was more about the ambiguity of qr codes - you can
put whatever you want on them.  If there is agreement as to what will be
put on them - a vcard, or a url to the contact page *which I can control*,
that's good.  However, if the point is to provide the sponsors with contact
information so they can email me after the fact, without my permission,
because anyone can take a camera and have contact information for anyone in
the photo, is what I was wondering about.  I agree that using QR codes or
other similar mechanism, for people that *want* to share information is a
great mechanism at a conference.  Otherwise, allow people to opt out as
they see fit.
