Dates back to the 60s at MIT. Although the meaning remains the same
it was not a typo. It was used
competitivly by programers working on chess AI. When one out programmed
he would refer to himself as King and the others
as pawns. It started being used
on Fido Net across the BBS world before internet
went public, although it was used
on the internet between
university's at the time.
Def: To PWN or Pawn someone/something means
to remove its status, to be made
unimportant. It means
that you have proved yourself better than another.
