I was wondering what you guys think is the best way to write an "alternative future" type story. Of course there is new technology and new ways to do things. How do you address it? I would find it awkward to compare it to modern-day, because 1) it's not going to be "modern-day" for long and 2) the characters have no real idea about the times now.
It's in third-person, not a time traveler story either.
