I am trying out a new URL shortner from YOURLS.org. It was easy to set up and configure. I like the idea of using it for workshop material, mobile phone links I use a lot, and more.
For example, I am working on a presentation for Animation-ish tomorrow and so created the link http://JasonE.me/animation. Or how about some mobile phone addresses: http://JasonE.me/m for my mail and http://JasonE.me/w for Kearney weather. It also has a handy little WordPress plug-in that allows you to publish a short URL to posts to Twitter.
I can’t wait to find new and fun ways to use this new tool.
