Grace Hopper’s “Bug”

      Comments Off on Grace Hopper’s “Bug”

“Robert X. Cringely” (Mark Stephens) repeats and debunks the story the Admiral Grace Hopper invented the term “bug” (refering to computer problems.)

Actually I’m pretty sure that she never intended to claim that she invented the term. That is a misunderstanding imposed by others. She just said that she found “the first genuine computer bug,” meaning the first bug that was actually an insect.
