« MOA06 uses thinglinks | Main | Moving servers on Monday »



Is there a benefit for having the ThingLinks shown to readers, not just search engines? I mean, alphanumeric codes are not exactly great for readability.


We decided to show the code on the thing page because that's helpful if you are labeling your object with the thinglink or trying to locate a thinglink that is attached to a physical object (a CD cover, whatever).

It's possible to embed thinglinks in barcodes and RFIDs so maybe over time the code could be hidden.


Sidetracking a bit, barcodes reminded me of this post on the S60 site: http://blogs.s60.com/tommi/2006/05/2d_barcodes_will_rule_the_eart.html#comments
