Computer bugs, slang for something gone wrong in a program, are actually named for a real insect. In 1947, technicians working for computer scientist Grace Hopper found a moth inside her computer. The trapped moth was making the machine malfunction. Once removed, they reported that the computer was “debugged”. They taped it onto her notes with a little joke that is now part of our everyday language.
