Is everyone reading FreakAngels now? Oh, good.

Anyone worth his/her steampunk salt (?) knows to give thanks to Jules Verne and H.G. Wells for their inspiring stories. One inspiree was Walt Disney, and this weblog entry looks into just how much the 19th-meets-25th century ideal influenced early Disneyland.

If you're more drawn to the 19th century end of the neovictorian spectrum, the 19th Century Shop is definitely worth a visit. (They're looking for a archivist, too. What an absolutely wonderful job that would be!)

For the more futuristic among us, the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology is the place for you. And in the present day, we have some beautiful Stirling Engines powered by candles!

(And lastly, for the retro-minded who don't care much about steampunk, I give you The Old Robots, full of Omnibots and other awesome mechanized buddies.)
