My response exactly... I thought it was just a different person / same name.

This is a really great idea. I love it.
And I hope its true.
This was the guy that predicted the fall of the Soviet Union.
His death does precede the release of one game he is given credit for, namely Zaster (1978). We may need a source.

EDIT: Strangely WP the POV sock-puppet encyclopedia does give a source.

Bro, Harmon (1997). A Seer out of Season. New York: St. Martin's. p. 305. ISBN 0312959885. citing article "The Pit: Copies of Game Invented by Bowling Green Man Received Here". Bowling Green Times Journal. 1904.

http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,756945,00.h...
puts this Journal in Warren County, Kentucky.

WP has him living in Hopkinsville which is some 60 miles from Bowling Green.

If someone can check on the existence of article "The Pit: Copies of Game Invented by Bowling Green Man Received Here". Bowling Green Times Journal. 1904" then it looks like reality is far stranger than anything I can imagine.
