Why You Should Be Using Disambiguated URLs

Simon Willison:

There’s one aspect of URL design that is often ignored. Good URLs should be unambiguous. By that, I mean that any logical piece of content should have one and only one definitive URL, with any alternatives acting as a permanent redirect.

Good advice. I’ve been redirecting www.daringfireball.net to daringfireball.net since at least 2003.
