Data storage - old and new

We found an old 80-column punched card - a relic from the time my wife was a programmer on IBM 360 mainframes.

The data on this card is object code from an assembler, apparently.

That's a 1GB memory stick for comparison.

 

There's a more recently posted alternative picture here, along with a rant about data security:

and I have a shot of the punched card on its own if anyone needs one.
