Links for 2007.11.22

» What’s so interesting about URLs anyway?
My recent post on the BBC’s radio lab blog about our recent work on /programmes and /music, and their URL design.

“The idea is that these URLs are persistent – they won’t need to change if the programme title, broadcast date, channel or anything else changes. Each URL also only represents a single concept so its easier for people to point to it if they want to discuss or share the programme with others. It also makes it easier for software engineers to write applications to mash-up our data to create more context about a programme.”

» Kindle vs Book
Why your regular paper book is better than Kindle. For me the biggest issue is DRM.
