"I can't tell whether or not there's going to be a Singularity. I don't really believe the rapture of the nerds stereotype..."
- Charles Stross

Home Planet

From Last and First Men, by Olaf Stapledon.
Published by Not known in 1930

John Campbell used this phrase in his story Black Star Passes, published later the same year in Amazing Stories Quarterly:
