Floppy disks in Japan: Minister declares war on old-fashioned technology

The BBC writes:
Quote:
Japan's digital minister has "declared war" on floppy disks and other retro tech used by the country's bureaucrats. A Japanese government committee has discovered about 1,900 areas in which businesses are required to use storage media like floppy disks when making applications or holding data.
If anybody (in Japan or elsewhere) is interested I still have an unopened box of 10 Maxell floppy disks, double-sided & DOS-formatted

My wife declared war on my stash of floppies.

I had no way to read them anyway.

I still have a bunch of zip disk and magnetic tapes.
