Hello! I am glad to see that ORCiD is becoming an important identifier in academia. Therefore, I decided to include my ORCiD in my email signature. It is only then that I realized that it is rather clunky (ORCiD: http://orcid.org/0000-0003-4967-6557 in my case). Therefore, I would like to suggest that you look into providing shortened ORCiD that are easier to remember or communicate. I would see two possible approaches: allowing usernames, e.g. http://orcid.org/niko.heeren or short-identifiers using something like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URL_shortening#Techniques In this case my ID would become something like http://orcid.org/a1cx23 Please feel free to contact me in case you have questions: firstname.lastname@example.org Kind regards, Niko Heeren
