I find myself having to think much more carefully about technology. While I've deliberately never placed Bec in a particular year, I started writing her story in 2007 so I casually placed her somewhere in that 2004-2007 time period (post 9.11 US - Bush era)

At the time, I didn't have to think much about technology -- what was around me was more or less correct. Now - 6 years later and technology has moved on. A high percentage of kids now have smart phones. ipads and their variations are ubiquitous. Memory sticks are also now ubiquitous. But for Bec, such things don't exist yet or are cutting edge so the ordinary kid in school doesn't have access to them.

The next couple of chapters the tecnology plays a part as Bec visits Phil (a bit of a nerd). I shall do my best to make the technology right but feel free to point things out if I get it wrong.
