TinyURL is great. It’s a wonderful service that replaces a really, really long URL, with an itty-bitty URL. For those of us who live online in IM, IRC and forums, it makes life a lot easier.
But. (There’s always a but)
It’s a bit crap for people who talk on the phone, or who present podcasts. So I present my latest technology demo, QuickURL, which creates tiny URLs with real words. (It’s currently limited to the 24,143 words in the dictionary between 4 and 7 characters long, but this is just a demo ). Admittedly, the rest of the url is a bit of a pain, but I reckon that quickurl.com/codfish/ (should I buy the domain) is better in conversation than tinyurl.com/?ahd73h
