Re: <nettime> Louis Pouzin, "the (French)man who did not invent the Internet" ...

> another bizare quirk in that strange French

the french kiss is an italian invention,  the condom an english one, & for 
crown it all the amour itself is a sheer arabian coined brainwave, no 
tristan no juliette nor carmen without their keplerXgalileo coinage..a 
legende even said eifel invented gatterbelt then his wife came in his studio 
in saying 'you guies you know how to built a 300 m tower then you havent an 
idea for keeping my stocking up'..then eifel improved with paper clip & 
string the bizar strange quirk of fate..really who would believe such idiot 
story except tourist who want to be raided
