I am going to refer you to Annie's post since she has summarised my only use of Wikis as part of the Cambridge graduate trainees last year. I certainly found it useful (but perhaps that was because I was using it in conjunction with CamTools and anything that functioned well was a godsend). Now I use Google Docs for group work and that works well enough that I haven't needed Wikis again.

I have gone technologically backwards since coming to America (I now have a flip phone with a real-life aerial!) so I have no snazzy smart phone with which to scan QR codes. They are a great idea in principle especially if they are links to useful sources - they are particularly useful on posters or bookmarks in the library as Bird does here (please click here if you want to see the slight architectural change I have undergone since John's!)
Having said that though, if you have a bookmark then you will either have the information or the URL to the information so a QR code may not make the whole process quicker but QR codes on posters or billboards may well be more efficient.
I have now started golf lessons am expected to know what I am doing since I come from the home of golf...I am afraid it doesn't work that way! The Festa Italiana was great today with amazing food and a rock and roll band to which I Lindied - it was great to get back into the swing of it (do you get it?!).
