Best Answer

Rear Admiral Grace Hopper was a pioneer in the computer industry. In her talks, she often would illustrate the speed of electricity by using a one-foot section of wire. Electricity can travel one foot in about one nanosecond (1 billionth of a second). Presumably this is where the term "Hopper's feet" or "hoppersfeet" came from.
