TODO is a psuedo-acronym meaning "things to do."

"There are things that still have to be done here."

it's from a "To Do" list. I have one for my home life

To Do
Mow the lawn
clean the gutters
paint some trim
take daughter to see "Beverly Hills Chihuahua"



It's the same thing in code... it's something you still need TO DO. putting it in a comment makes them easy to find with a 'grep' of your code base.
