There is a widely held belief that technology progress in the enterprise is slow and methodical, that adoption cycles are long, and that experimentation is inappropriate. Here at Google we believe that experimentation is a good thing – even in the enterprise space. Some of our best ideas have emerged from experiments, products like Google Maps and snazzy new Gmail Labs features like Calendar and Docs gadgets, as well as Google Suggest and the collection of enterprise search labs.

Cool. I thought that the "marketplace" service was going to get added to Google Apps. And this is why.

Now, Short Links works for me.

I like the email sent to notify someone about a URL ownership transfer

<<Dear [USER],

me invites you to take ownership for the coolest and awesomest
link in the world: [URL]

Everyone will envy you, but with great power comes great responsibility.
So think twice before you take on this noble quest, then go to [URL]

Best regards,

Your friendly neighborhood "shortlink" application>>
