My company recently restarted a facility. It had been closed before I joined the company in 2004. I've made a few visits the the site and recently needed a pen. I headed off to the storeroom and was surprised to see a healthy supply of floppy disks on a shelf. At 3.5" these were a big advance over the 5.25" previous generation. Today, I have three USB pocket drives that all have at least 16GB of memory. The raw images for this post were each larger than the capacity of these floppy disks.
