More on short links

I discovered MakeAShorterLink last month. Tara Calishain discovers a few more URL-shortening services in this week's issue of ResearchBuzz.

The first one is, which makes postable tiny urls. The second is (whose interface uses a favourite colour scheme of mine). It appears that will give me both the short URL and a password for the short URL (and a URL with the password included to access the short URL stats directly.) Stats include the date the URL was created and the number of hits it has generated. Sounds like something that generate some interesting data for newspapers who would love to know what people are reading. Definitely something they would consider charging for.
