Stanislaw Lem for writing The Cyberiad, coining the term 'constructor' in 1967.

Wait, what? How could he coin that term? He didn't even write in English.

    you say potato... When it was translated to English in 1972, that's the word they used for whatever Polish word occurred in the original. I am completely ignorant of Polish, however, so I cannot say whether the word Lem used in his book is the same one current Polish programmers use when talking about OOP.
