Thanks, I expected this one! It’s based on a fortune cookie, a message wrapped in a container. The name “cookies” comes from a software trick from an old operating systems manual I read a few years earlier, a technique for passing information back and forth between the user and the system. For some reason, the small piece of data exchanged had been called a “magic cookie.” Inspired by that earlier model, sketched out an architecture for a web-based “cookie” that would give the medium a sense of memory without compromising privacy.

The original design limited cookies to just a single website, the one that is being sent by the HTTP request.
