                 at the genealogy of the computational method now known
                 as Genetic Programming (GP for short). In so doing, it
                 treats GP as a case study for elucidating the process
                 of technical innovation. Working on the assumption that
                 the contrast between sudden Eureka and stepwise
                 improvement is a polarity rather than a sharp
                 dichotomy, it introduces a simple technique for
                 identifying the main steps in the march of GP from
                 margin to mainstream. It is argued that this approach
                 could be applied more widely to other areas of
                 scientific or technological advance possibly even
                 offering the prospect of resolution to some of the more
                 belligerent academic priority disputes.",
