I go for the same recommendation that some gave: buy a short domain and
run a simple webserver that is responsible for shortening URLs.

One can, of course, rely on some third-party to do this, but I found out
that most common URL shorteners *do more nasty stuff* --- such as
requiring you to automatically run non-free software using JavaScript in
your web browser --- than just shortening the addresses. Even so,
suppose a given service is found by you to be "good", it doesn't mean it
will be "good" in the future. I remember back in 2005 when some good URL
shorteners decided to misuse their popularity.
