    Ironic that this document, which talks about usability and flexibility of information on the Internet should be locked inside of a PDF document.  I think I shall use my rights under the Creative Commons license to convert this to a number of more suitable markup and e-book formats.

    Locked up? PDF became an open standard in 2008. Or am I missing something?

    Ironically Aaron discusses useful and non-useful URL structures right at the beginning of this document, but the document itself resides at an aggressively non-useful URL.

    Also, when pasting that link into Facebook the document title shows as “An Error Occurred Setting Your User Cookie” it’s pretty lol-worthy.
