This week we will be brainstorming classroom uses of URL shortening, along with a bonus advertisement for QR codes. Both offer you the chance to do some learning analytics and just in time teaching. I have not gotten a physical news paper in a long time, but this Sunday I was at my parent's house and all through the automobile section were QR codes.

Comment at the event or on the comments below.
Update: Here is a link to the video of the presentation and conversation.
Update 2: Here is a great QR Code infographic (via @dkuropatwa).
