It's my good old law of "persistence of information", which somebody
thought was good enough to archive and to which I gave name in 1995 or
I found the link of course, by using Google and people sometimes point
it out to me....
I don't know whether I was the first to invent the term, but it's the oldest
reference I can find from somewhere back in 1995.....
Now they have whole discourses on it. I wonder if I can get a royalty,
a grant, lunch, or something....? ;)
