I have just made a new service live called stURLs (http://sturls.com). Like Tiny URL, it is a URL shortening service. However unlike the current URL shortening services, this one will display the URL to the user so they can then inspect the URL is from a safe source, and decide whether to continue on to the site or not.
As a little bit of fun, and to mark the release of this service I have create a “recursion” sturl, basically the sturl links back to itself putting the linked user into an infinite loop of the same URL.
This is inspired by the much loved Google Easter Egg which asks the user “Do you mean Recursion?” when they search the same word (clicking the suggestion just links back to the same search query).
