the word “phone” has meant almost entirely one thing for close to a century, but by 2007 it meant a device that was also a personal stereo, a stockbroker, a weather prognosticator, and a flashlight. By 2013, my glasses serve not only as a phone but also as a video phone. To write a book set in the present, circa 2013, is to write about the distant past.
