Overcoming the Speed Obsession

In a recent WebMonkey article, Peter Merholz incites web developers to:

“reconsider the “speed rules” notion. It’s no secret that pornography sites attract phenomenal traffic. But everyone knows that porn sites are excruciatingly slow. Even so, hoards of people are willing to not only wait for them but pay for them as well. How is it that the usual speed limits simply don’t apply to these blue sites?”
Controversial stuff indeed…
