I hardly even see anyone with a floppy disk recently, let alone a computer with a floppy drive. These
I was thinking about all these nostalgic programs when my daughter walked into the room. She is four years old, and she had no idea what I was holding in my hand. She asked me, “Why do you have a save button in your hand?” She saw this floppy drive, and all she saw was an icon for the save function, the same way a bluebird represents Twitter, or a blue “F” represents Facebook. I tried to explain to my daughter what a floppy disk is, that we used to use it as storage, and she just laughed and said “no, no, no, you store data on a USB drive!” At this moment, I was speechless – because she is right!
The world is changing so fast, it is like the ground is moving underneath us while we are still walking. A floppy disk is just a save button, and no one knows about CD or DVD drivers! We all use USB thumb drives and “cloud” storage like Dropbox. So here is my question, and it is one I do not have the answer to: what is next now? How will we communicate six weeks, six months, or six years from now? How will we exchange files? Will we even need to exchange files? What is the next big thing?
