TaggI just put the finishing touches on a beta version of is a short URL service that takes long URLs and turns them into short URLs.

I choose the domain because it is the shortest domain I could find when spelled on a standard cell phone key pad. On my Razr, spelling takes only 5 keystrokes (82144). Other services take many more keystrokes to spell. For example, takes 24 keystrokes to spell.

I also added functionality so that you can add keyword tags to your which should make it easy to find interesting links.

I made a bunch of short cuts people can play with:

And a bookmark tool to make it easy to make Ta.ggs. Simply add the link below to your browser favorites/bookmarks: It!
and click it everytime you stumble across a URL you need to

It’s built on Rails, so it will be interesting to see how it scales.

If you give it a try, let me know what you think.
