Grace Hopper was a pioneer in computing and worked at the Harvard Computation Laboratory on the early Mark computers. She loved to recount the origins of the term. In 1946, there was a problem with the Mark II that operators traced to a moth trapped in a relay, coining the term bug. This bug was carefully removed and taped to the log book. Thus, the origin of errors or glitch's in a program being called a bug.
