Yep. "Short urls with analytics", is their (cli.gs) tagline.

I also looked up "clig" on urbandictionary and, luckily for them (?), it is not defined yet.

How can we argue with conclusions like that. :)

Forget URL shorteners... letting sites set their own short links is a much better idea. My money's on rel="shortlink" because I haven't found any flaws yet - *all* of the earlier proposals (including my own) have varying degrees of deficiency.

Basically by specifying a short link (e.g. http://example.com/promo or http://example.com/123) in the HTML and/or HTTP headers, Twitter clients et al will be able to "resolve" a URL back to something short and sensible.

I suspect cligs is a play on the word clicks. Would you know how long each url shortener has been around?

I would tend to agree with the authors making stable points.
