Dan Bashaw replied to Robert Holbach's discussion QR Codes - potential for lawsuits?
"Very good points, and in general I agree. Here at Brescia we identified a 'test use case' for QR: When students pile off the bus from main campus, they all have smartphone in hand, so we created a simple  'Daily Brescia' web…"

Robert Holbach replied to Robert Holbach's discussion QR Codes - potential for lawsuits?
"To be honest, I have yet to see a QR Code which has enhanced my life, as a user. It's easier to find bad examples of QR codes than good ones. (A railway station in Bristol replaced all the timetables on platforms with QR Codes, so you could…"

QR Codes - potential for lawsuits?

Came across an interesting story on the BBC today:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-23898080"Patent trolls take out generalised patents, often on widely available technology, and then demand money from companies who use or offer it.

Web forums / social features / student contribution areas

Hello I am one of the admins of our student portal's Facebook public profile (https://www.facebook.com/uniglamlife) and our Twitter account (https://twitter.com/glamlife). A while ago, I set things up so our Facebook updates syndicate out to our Twitter account. I believe I set this up in Facebook, but for the life of me, I cannot find where that setting is at the moment. Not sure whether that's due…See More
