For those who are wondering where the link leads, it goes to <http://www.mindtouch.com/blog/2010/06/23/the-top-10-best-technical-documentation-sites-of-2010/>. It ends up being something of an ad for Mindtouch (paraphrasing: most of those sites don't use our product, but you should!), but contains some information that people may find useful.

But this brings up another question: why do people use URL shorteners when space is *not* short? I can see shortening URLs when all you have is 140 characters, but otherwise, what's the point (outside of hiding the destination of the link)? I readily admit I may be missing something...
