- Deb Truskey: The floppy disc was invented in 1970 as well as the microprocessor. Atari games were popular. (Post It Notes were also invented in the 70’s.) However, my technology as a student was in the form of a tape recorder, a typewriter and a stereo record player. (Favorite memory: “A Horse With No Name” by America being blasted out of the dorm window.)
