Claims to have coined term ‘nybble’ (Chicago, 1967)

“I happen to be speaking about bits and bytes when a pretty young thing in the front row popped off the question, “If eight bits is a byte then what is four bits or half a byte?” It caught me off guard and the smirk she had on her face thew me for a second. I fired back without a second thought, “If eight bits is a byte then four bits is a nybble.” The class broke up and the smirk she had wore left her face.”
