URLs are here to stay

The death of the URL? Heck no!

As _why observed (can't find where), URLs are little pieces of hacking that have entered the mainstream.

Far beyond their intended use, scribbling them with lipstick on cocktail napkins, URLs have gone everywhere. Like on buses. And caps. Even to Texas.

I expect to see even more of them, everywhere.

(Interestingly, even ugly URLs work well, like YouTube's. People treat them as opaque most of the time, anyway.)
