Radiohead goes floppy

You know you're getting old when an album from a few years back is being re-issued in a 20th anniversary edition.

Yes that's right folks - life moves pretty fast as Ferris Bueller said 31 years ago!

Anyway remember last week I posted about disappearing tech? Well here's another great example.

An OK Computer screensaver on a floppy disc.

Screensavers are definitely old hat these days. And Apple ditched the floppy drive about a year after OK Computer was released.

Which makes me that that maybe, just maybe, there's an opportunity to create a technology museum.

Nothing too hi-tech. Just a place to showcase the fun features and products that have come and gone in my lifetime.

Hmmm! Maybe I should do a Kickstarter?
