The Anecdotes Department is an opportunity for participants in the history of computing to contribute reminiscences of salient events. These stories can vary in scale from the origins of a term to first-person accounts of critical turning points.

Since the material in this column often represents personal views tempered or sometimes weakened by memory, the editor invites other opinions and evidence.
