How prevalent is technology, especially high tech gear in Withmore generally and in the Mix specifically?
Is technology one of those things like cyberware, clean water and safety that is normally limited to the corporate citizens?
Is technology the sort of like cyberware and nice clothing in that only the most successful of Mixers will ever own their own television, or QuickTerm?
When it comes to professions and the prevalence of technicians, are they relatively rare in the Mix? Are technicians like doctors or other "professionals" who usually flee topside for all of the implicit benefits (safety, steady pay, etc)? Or are technicians pretty common due to there being a constant need to keep all of the hand me down and recycled technology working?
I am really curious to hear everyone's perspective on this.
