I added a near-future tag with my last question: Low-tech inertial dampener options I feel like this is a very common time-period to write stories on and definitely deserves a tag. However, I had a hard time coming up with a good description for the tag. I was hoping someone who is better at descriptions could help suggest a good wiki description for the tag.
In particular I feel like it should say that the world is close enough to the present day to not feel alien to present day readers. New technology will likely exist, but most of the technology should feel as simple logical progressions of the existing technology, not so advanced to be functionally magic. Spaceships may exist, but energy shields and teleporters for that ship may not. New energy generation sources could be produced, but no Singularity reached etc. However, I didn't know how to describe that coherently in so few words.
Any help on word-smithing the tag?
