Does anyone know where User Stories came from before they appeared in Kent
Beck's Extreme Programming Explained in 1999?
mentions that the first XP project started 6 March 1996. Elsewhere Kent Beck
and Ward Cunningham are implicated as the creators of XP but it is not clear
at what point User Stories came about. (The rest of the world was pretty
much use-case driven at that point!)

Please reply to me and I will summarize for the list.
