If you spend any time at all on Twitter, Facebook or other similar sites, you’ve surely noticed by now that links to external pages are often really short, and have some kind of condensed domain name, e.g., n.pr, kng5.tv, etc. Bit.ly and other similar services (the .ly domain belongs to Libya, BTW) have offered free domain shortening for many years, which can make ungainly links like those generated by Google Maps much more manageable. (I wish more people knew about this…)
Well, there’s now a domain shortening service for the scooter world: Andrew (Danger is my middle name) has launched Scoot.to (.to is Tonga), a free service. If your scooter event or scooter business has a long, unintuitive URL (e.g., a Facebook event page), you can plug it into Scoot.to and get something easy to remember. Think of how you get there.
I got scoot.to/oldskool for this here blog.
