25 Years of Removable Storage in One Photograph

Thomas Morffew published this amazing photo showing 25 years of removable storage artifacts. At the top are 5.25- and 3.5-inch floppy disks. Towards the bottom, in the center are some CDs and then comes the solid-state storage—memory sticks, SD cards, and Micro SD cards. The bottom-most Micro SD cards have so much storage capacity that they can each hold the contents of all of the other storage media in the picture. All spanning 25 years. What’s missing? 8-inch floppy disks, WORM (write-once, read mostly) optical media, and tape products.
