I just read an interesting article on the various downsides to URL shorteners. Let's not break the Internet that way. I found the article on Hacker News, which I'd forgotten about -- this is the Hacker News at Y Combinator, not the good ol' but long-dead Hacker News Network formerly at hackernews.com.
In other news, our very own Selena Deckelmann appears in moving pictures at FLOSS Weekly 64! I haven't even had time to watch it all yet.
