Collecting AOL Disks
from the scary dept
There is a growing hobby for people who definitely have too much free time on their hands: they are collecting those free AOL disks that have been sent all over the world. The Wired article talks to a few of the collectors, and they sound pretty obsessive about this scary little hobby. At least they’re not spending too much money on it. Mostly they can find the disks for free (though, occasionally some of them resort to eBay for the really rare ones). When someone comes out with a book discussing the value of the various AOL disks will be the point at which it has officially gone too far.
