Web addresses to remember: Spaces blog links

Here’s a memo to Microsoft: you can take the idea of a dynamic website a little too far.

Case in point: I was commenting on Herman’s blog. After signing in, Microsoft kindly filled in my details, including the blog link that I apparently inherited when signing up for Spaces. (I assure you, that was an accident).

Anyway, I don’t think I’ll be putting this web link on a business card anytime soon:

What on Mother’s Green Earth makes Microsoft think this is a useful, valid URL? Part of URLs are to make the web memorable, not nightmarish with a unique identifier embedded in the link. Silly.
