Who is the V. Guhan who is quoted in the signature:

"If I have not seen farther, it is because giants have stood on my shoulders." -- V. Guhan

Is this a saying that was first used on the internet? Or was it written in literature?

What signature---where :confused:This sig (http://www.mail-archive.com/boston-pm@mail.pm.org/msg02023.html), obviously.
The quote is more usually attributed to Hal Abelson (http://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/users/hal/).
