I have no idea who may have said that first, but one of the people I was reminded of when I learned of Robert's PubSub, was James "Kibo" Parry who did that sort of thing back on USENET... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kibo)

"uncanny, machine-assisted knack for joining any thread in which his nom de guerre is mentioned (to "kiboze")"

Aristotle Pagaltzis

This particular phrasing may be new, but the notion itself has been around since untold times: “speak of the devil.”

Robert Scoble

Richard: Kibo is here! Heh.
