Howlina Characters Day 12 - Technology

"12.) How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email?"

The story will be set 30 - 50 years in the future.  The things we have as cutting edge technology now will be old hat in the story.

Fiole IS the cuting edge of technology.  As a genetically engineered person she is part of the Science Fiction element in the story.  As a Super she is a genius and is up to date on all the latest technology as well, not to mention that she has a doctorate in computer systems technology.

Frank is techno-savvy but is also nature-wise.  He can start a fire with flint and steel; or a bow and drill.  He knows how to read the weather, make a camp, and cook outdoors with the foods he can gather in the wild.  On the other hand he carries the latest portable computer system.  He is not old fashioned, but he sees technology as a tool, not a way of life.
