Trade by post

category: general [glöplog]
 
Hi all
I was thinking, if it would be a good idea, to swap disks by snail post, like the old days.
Maybe some kind of chain, when each previous guy add's something new to the disk, art, text file, something, and pass to the next in the chain.
What do you guys think?
Best regards

it is basically a nice idea.
maybe kids/young sceners could try it out too, to get an impression of how it worked in the early days....
plus: to learn to anticipate a sending and not just pressing a button or two to receive stuff. =)

Hi gman, thank you for your comment.
Me, for instance, had contact with all the scene way too late. Never been in any group, never traded floppies, never been to a copy party, and I think I missed a huge chunk of all the scene. The ony thing I did was music tape trading and it was a blast. The anticipation, to discover new musics and artists.
Today, it's all so easy and immediate. With a couple of clicks, we get almost everything we want.
I love to read through party reports, the got papers website, textfiles.com, and there's an entire scene I know nothing about.
Cheers

But seriously.

I'm still doing this kind of thing.
f.e. quite some disk-versions of the Thunderdome-Demo(2 disks with printed labels and special hardcover envelope) were sent to close Atari scene friends by snailmail - even over to Greece! :)
