I (Jive Dadson) said that. I guess I figured that if I knew about it, it
was widely known. But in retrospect, I had an information edge. I was in
Silicon Valley, working on the Next Big Thing, and I was wired into USENET.
My earliest dejagoogle hit is from '86. (It's not under "Jive Dadson", a
more recent nom du net.)
He didn't say "OOP all began when..." or "OOP was widely

Well, it was widely known by everyone who read the motos I stuck up on my
cubicle walls. :-)
