Mortadella and ping

Hey, this post is vintage content. It dates back more than 18 years ago: it may contain outdated and inaccurate information.

Once again I am amazed how the comparison with food comes in handy to explain concepts that are not exactly trivial: Massimo Russo explains, comparing mortadella and bread to ping servers and blogs, the reasons why a few days ago Dave Winer sold the domain for a couple of million dollars.

A figure that, thrown out there without explanation, could leave one quite astonished...
