There is a venerable tradition in SF fandom of trying to work out how to
introduce technologies to hypothetical societies.  It's complicated - not
only do you have to have the right resources, and introduce things in the
right order, there also needs to be immediate benefits and needs to be met,
or the technology won't actually be retained; even in a society with
advanced records, techniques that aren't used tend to be lost or abandoned.
