what created /dev/shm?

Today, for the first time *ever* in my many years of running linux the
'df' command returned this line:

tmpfs                   193188         0    193188   0% /dev/shm

Where did this come from?

"To deal with men by force is as impractical as to deal with nature by
 persuasion -- which is the policy of savages, who rule men by force and
 plead with nature by prayers, incantations and bribes (sacrifices)."
