I Created Godwin's Law in 1990, But it Wasn't a Prediction - It was a Warning
Although I'm proud of my career-spanning work on internet rights and freedoms, my biggest claim to internet notoriety is my little social experiment, Godwin's Law, which I crafted back in the days before there was large-scale public access to the internet.

Based on my own early experience of online arguments, I had come up with this mock "law," which was meant to have the sound and seeming inevitability of a law of physics or mathematics: "As an online discussion continues, the probability of a comparison to Hitler or to Nazis approaches 1."
