Sneaker Net Also called FloppyNet : Sharing files by copying them to floppy disks (or tape, ZIP, UsbKeychainDrive, any removable media) and taking them to the computer where you want the files. Widely used before local networks (and the internet) were commonplace
SneakerNet is the file transfer protocol in the land of paranoid IT departments.

Sneakernet is a jargon term for the method of transmitting electronic information by personally carrying it from one place to another on floppy disk or other removable medium. The idea is that someone is using their shoes (possibly sneakers) to move data around rather than using the telecommunications network.
