Confession time: I am always surprised (and a little thrilled) when I see Steampunk Librarian mentioned on a weblog, or linked in someone's sidebar. Thanks, all. It's appreciated!

Steam, once the energy source of the past, may become the energy source of the future! Now it's referred to as "solar thermal technology," and Google is helping to fund the concept. I love the idea of huge mirrors creating electricity via steam.

I also love the idea of the Telectroscope, too. The Club Creatures are going to be visiting Brooklyn soon and I am going to insist they check out the New York location.

Greystone Court is near NYC and looks like all sorts of awesome, and it was created in a DIY kind of way. Check out the observatory!

Even the Penny Arcade guys are getting into the steampunk mindset, with an upcoming game called "On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness." It's a bit more Lovecraft than steampunk, but hey, all the boundaries are blurring together these days, anyway.

For the paper-folders among us: make your own little papery steam tank!

And finally, from Danny (thanks, Danny!): the weirdness of Fubbs.net. Click away merrily and be entertained!
