Shadowrun - Do Not Distribute by SteamPoweredMikeJ Shadowrun - Do Not Distribute by SteamPoweredMikeJ
From the Shadowrun book "Divided Assets", FASA, 1994.
It's amazing how often I drew people in the sci-fi future handing over floppy discs. Ugh...

Since floppies were only for a short part of my childhood, they always had a place in my heart.

Wow, I feel so old. I worked with floppies daily for years... and when *I* was a kid, we had a basement full of punch cards...

I'm nearly a generation younger than my brothers, I loved reading their sourcebooks.

Highly secure format. What the hell are you going to find a floppy drive in '54? =P

Fexes & TheCentipede pretty much said what I was thinking. You drew with what you knew & even if it is a little anachronistic, it's still kickass art.

In your defense, the short life of storage formats hadn't quite been demonstrated yet... and the picture needs identifiable iconography, since a CD or whatnot wouldn't have quite worked at the time (especially since they were write-only!). Artistic license. That's a perfectly good excuse. ;)

Heh. Well, that *was* my thinking at the time - At a glance, viewers would know EXACTLY what was going down. Ironically though, Shadowrun had 'data sticks', which I thought were a ridiculous concept... and now here I am 20 years later with a fistfull of USB sticks in the house. Go figure.

Meanwhile, here in the heart of Phantom Works, I still use a 3.5" floppy every day.

As a coaster. <_<
