Descriptive URLs

The URL of this page (.../thoughts/redundancy.html) probably didn't help you find it and once you have arrived here, it doesn't add useful information.
Even worse, it is not only unnecessary to make URLs descriptive, it actually hurts: Web pages are usually not static, but evolve over time, and sooner or later the descriptive URL won't fit the contents any more. Then the URL will usually be changed to avoid confusion, leading to broken links.
