As far as I know, the term "unicorn" was spawned by super moderator Mike Stollenwerk during a conversation with former moderator longwatch in a conversation about OC during a post-VCDL meeting Fuddruckers dinner.
longwatch then used it in a conversation with me, also at Fuddruckers, and after laughing about it, we started using it on the board here, and what do you know? It's spread around a bit.
Keep in mind that this was probably over a year and a half ago, when the membership of this forum was only a fraction of what it is now, so members had a tendency to read almost every thread.
