Miniature personalised URLs

This isn't a new secret, but it's worth mentioning anyway.

Miniaturising and customising your own URLs is easy and free (at least for now). Check out these sites to get started:

I've already created a short URL to a published GOOGLE DOC which hosts my current curriculum vitae.

A miniaturised URL is a handy piece of information to add to the end of an email and is also easy to remember in a conversation.

There's also Google's http://goo.gl

You can manage them from your Google account, but I don't think you can use custom abbreviations, though.

I don't think I follow. You can have shortened URLs but not customisable ones? How does that help to remember a URL then, if it's GhdljkCdxa?
