It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that ping

It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that ping: Dave Winer, or as I like to call him, “Uncle Dave,” provides instant corrections to the AP report on VeriSign’s purchase of the ping service and related assets of weblogs.com. Like, for example, Dave points out that weblogs.com receives pings rather than sends pings.
