The Episode wasn’t all bad. With her tracker warning her of the borders of her 3S (“Social Safe Space”), she had her privacy and security. She knew where she could go and what she could do, as did everyone else each within their invisible fence. The Government had subcontracted the trackers to The Company which had added the social. Her “bubble”, “garden”, “home” – they’d tried lots of different words – talked to her neighbours’: shared shopping lists, Street screen binge nights, neighbourhood watch. She wasn’t particularly social, but she did enjoy seeing the ads and working out who they were for.
