Re: Some science fiction "firsts"
I guess the first cro-magnon magician - Zargon the magnificent - made the first rock disappear and reappear in his hand, just like the most famous song ever - 'Happy Birthday' was written by a woman school teacher to greet her class every morning. She still gets royalties. If she's still alive she's very old.
You've never heard of Google or Wikipedia, have you?
