Daniel Allen sees a problem faced by Web surfers: How to share long URLs with others and quickly locate favorite Web pages or documents without wading through lists of browser bookmarks? Allen and his wife, Mary Jane, are both self-taught programmers, among other professions. Their answer to the above problem is QuestKeys, a new approach to finding and storing links to Web sites and other digital information using their HyperTransfer Engine and QuestKeys.com.


The Challenges QuestKeys Faces...

Remember Networds from 1998? See

I want one of these URL short-cut systems to work, I really do, and I'm a huge fan of this type of creative solution. There have been numerous attempts at similar services. The challenges are many, from adoption of the method by a user base, to avoiding the inevitable with trademarks/tradenames and the soon to arrive QuestKey spammers. One has to ask, if the shortcut URL model makes sense, isn't it likely to be rolled out by someone with a critical mass of users already, like Google? The standalone shortcut URL model, IMO, would be best suited to really vertical markets, and/or BtoB implimentations.

You missed the point

You missed the point. Questkeys is not an URL or short URL maker, it is an Universal Bookmarking system. To even state that is living in the past. Questkeys is now known as the Internet Operator. The technology used to create the Universal Bookmarking System has expanded to actually improving how we collect information, research it, and distribute it online. I really wish you would visit the site before commenting about a technology you have not used. This article does not give the technology justice.

Copy the URL below into your browser to get a sample of what we mean when we say Research.

Also goto questkeys.com and click on "instructions" to learn how to use the technology (Internet Operator). If you believe you missed the point, as I do, write another article.

P.S. we've also made it so you can track UPS and Fedex packages easier. No more remembering long tracking numbers, now you can name your packages.

Which most influences your decision to accept a LinkedIn invite from a stranger?
Groups or interests we have in common
Personal message they included with the invitation
Relevance of their industry or experience to my own
Size of their network and/or how many connections we have in common
Thoroughness and credibility of their LinkedIn profile
All of the above -- I am meticulous about whom I allow in my network
None of the above -- I accept all LinkedIn invites
