Definition[edit]

I'm troubled by the fact that this article seems to suggest that the origin of these words is from computing--when in fact, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, they predate the information age. The oldest use seems to be in the railroad industry, followed by airlines, and the older pre-internet uses in computing follow from those usages. There's also use of the word in the social sciences that predates the internet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.254.108.46 (talk) 05:24, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
