I teach kids who were born around 2000. A few months ago I showed them a floppy disk and I explained how I used to download games online at school, split them up into as many parts as needed, put them on floppy disks and then piece them together at home.

They were amazed at all of those things: that I didn't have the internet at home, the meagre capacity of floppy disks and that a game could be about 3MB. The best thing, though, was that some of them only then realised why the "save" icon is what it is.
