CodingHorror on how URL shorteners are killing the Web

This article.

I don’t really agree with the ‘kill’ bit… that’s the way the Net evolves. We need to evolve with it. I also don’t see why Twitter shortening URLs is a problem for the Net at large, apart from indirectly… Twitter is a walled garden anyway.

I however like the suggestion of major search engines offering their own URL shortening services.
