Abstract: Most of us use common computer terms everyday but don’t take the time to think about how these words came to being in the computer world. There are some interesting stories as to the origins of these terms. “Bug”. This may be the most well-known word because of its interesting story. While Grace Hopper, a pioneer of computer programming, was working on the Harvard Mark II, she traced the cause of a glitch in the computer to an actual moth trapped in a relay. The moth she found can still be seen on display in the Smithsonian Museum. As some of you may be desperate to point out, this was not actually the first use of the term “bug” to describe a malfunctioning system.
