Sorry if this is old news, but a search here didn't yield anything.

The BBC (as in British Broadcasting Corporation) has recently begun using BBC.in as an URL shortener. Apparently, BBC wants to make sure that people who click on BBC.in links are assured that the story will indeed lead to a BBC story.

Someone wrote about it here:

BBC and Bit.ly create bbc.in | Ryan Morrison (Up Your Ego)

They also use it on Twitter, for example BBC Leeds:

http://twitter.com/BBCLeeds

Pretty nice move and good to see a media heavyweight like this use the .in extension.
