Prior Art Due Diligence

September 2, 2008 7:10 PM

I'm trying to track down whether I can claim credit for the meme that maven “downloads the Internet”. After an admittedly short search, I couldn't find any reference on the public web prior to my December 2007 blog post. If you have a link to anything earlier—web page, mailing-list post, commit message—let me know in the comments. Otherwise I'm claiming it as my contribution to society.

(Sorry, published references only. I am also aware that "download the Internet" has a pedigree that predates maven.)
