I'm writing a sci-fi short story, in a dingy space station. I want it to have a really old timey sci-fi feel, from like the 70's, so it can be set at like the edges of space, but without all of the advances with actually have made technologically. For instance, I feel like if I were writing this story 40 years ago, I could say "They sat at the edge of Neptune, reading out the pages from the printer," but I'm afraid nowadays people might say "Uh, if they're at the edge of Neptune, surely technology has advanced enough that they aren't printing things on paper. They would be using ipods, nimrod." Or some such thing, I'm just trying to make a point, that wasn't necessarily the best example. Will people just accept the world I create, or does it have to have some sort of consistency with current standards?
