Want to Join this Wiki?

I'm often asked by people after i present at a conference to join this Wiki! and that's so flattering but... because of how we use it, if you're not an MHMS teacher we'd rather you not add pages or edit our stuff...but if you want to just use our pages or link to them feel free to! you don't have to join our wiki to do that! but of course, suggestions and comments and discussion replies are always welcome!!!

So, what is steampunk?

external image medium_steampunkLaptop2.jpg

"Steampunk lives in the reincarnated collective past of shadows and ignored alleys. It is a historical wunderkabinet, which promises, like Dr. Caligari's, to wake the somnambulist of the present to the dream-reality of the future. We are archaeologists of the present, reanimating a hallucinatory history."

"It's the Victorian era not as it was but as it should have been" - Shaunathan Sprocket - New Babbage
