What is the Bitcoin Pizza Index?

The Bitcoin Pizza Index is derived from the first documented purchase using Bitcoins.

On May 18th 2010 Laszlo Hanyecz made known he was willing to buy 2 pizzas for a price of 10,000 Bitcoins. At the time this was worth $41. Four days later, May 22nd, the transaction took place. This date has become known as Bitcoin Pizza Day.

The index is the value of 10,000 Bitcoins at today's market price. The index illustrates the deflationary properties of Bitcoin.

So what are those 10,000 Bitcoins worth in terms of other commodities and currencies....?
