Make sure you test the scannability with different readers. I've found the FOSS ones don't scan as well as some of the commercial ones. Zxing will often not scan marginal tags that Redlaser or I-nigma will correctly read. 

Thanks,

I have been thinking about how it would be great to be able to do a little visual sorting this way, within the space, above and beyond "oh, that person has a laptop and doesn't smell too bad, must be a hacker"

What if we had a special edition of those, or something else entirely, that we issued to members and key-trusted people in the larger community?  there could be a whole ecology of designs, and if you are leet enough to make one then you are hacker enough to stay.  It would have to be something that was feasible to carry around a lot of the time, so we could build a culture of people displaying their nametag/QR code/whatever when they were at noisebridge.  Eventually, if you didnt have one it would be because you were either a noob or an oogle.
