Description
This circular button has a white background with black text that reads: "TERMINATE YOUR SNEAKER NET WITH INTO". In the center of a red circle with a diagonal red line is the black outline image of sneaker. A mark in black ink on the reverse reads: "FOSE '89."
Sneakernet is computer jargon for the method of moving electronic data by personally carrying it from one place to another on removable media such as floppy disk, compact disk, flash drive, etc. The term was coined in the early days of computing before networks were common.
