(slang) A reference to Web pages that disappear and leave only "404 File Not Found" errors in their place. The reference comes from the telephone area code of Atlanta, Georgia, which is 404. Web pages that produce 404 errors are said to have "moved to Atlanta."

I'm not entirely sure how they came into existance, but I have a set of magnetic poetry from whatis.com. It has lots of good tech terms, in addition to the standard pronouns, verbs, etc...

I'm guessing that's true. I'm guessing the term was coined after 404 was designated as the number for http not found
