It was in reference to the old college "facebooks" (not so old, I remember my wife got on at University of Oregon in 99) that showed incoming and new students, their names, and their hometown and majors.

I think they saw how big Myspace was and decided to go public to everyone
 
We used to call that new freshman book, "The Baby Book"  That was waaay  before computers, though.

First Computer Bug

The Bug

In 1947, Grace Murray Hopper was working on the Harvard University Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator (a primitive computer).

On the 9th of September, 1947, when the machine was experiencing problems, an investigation showed that there was a moth trapped between the points of Relay #70, in Panel F.

The operators removed the moth and affixed it to the log. (See the picture above.) The entry reads: "First actual case of bug being found."

 

The word went out that they had "debugged" the machine and the term "debugging a computer program" was born.

Although Grace Hopper was always careful to admit that she was not there when it actually happened, it was one of her favorite stories.
