Blackpool Makerspace received an invitation from Poland to attend a financial services conference to be held in London on Thursday 4th October.
The invite generated much discussion about the media the invite arrived on. A 3.5 inch floppy disk! One of our younger members, Josh, had never seen a real floppy disk before.
Some suggested the floppy was a stunt to make the invite stand out and become a talking point, as only geeks would have the ability or hardware to read a floppy.
On a separate note, Dan Lynch from Liverpool Makerspace came for a visit today before going with Les to the Blackpool Raspberry Jam birthday party. Four years and still going strong.
