We have a follow-up report from last month's post about Legend! Danny has seen several episodes and says they're worth watching. (Thanks!)

Also, from last week's comments, Dan sends in this great link about a British team looking to break the steam car world record. Oooo.

Swiped from Ookee: this 1934 BMW motorcycle is gorgeous and steamy and futuristic-looking all at once.

Compressed-air gramophones are new to me, but were apparently all the rage at one time. There's a giant page full of images and details for anyone interested in the Auxetophone and its ilk.

Artist Christian Hammer is working on a super-secret project, but can share some steampunk cards in the meantime. They look fantastic.

Two resources that are always worth checking out: The ongoing steampunk category page at Dark Roasted Blend and the Etsy Steam Team weblog, which includes Twitter updates.

And finally, because in my world steampunk and transhumanism are alike: what's the value of mind uploading, anyway? Quite a lot, some think.

(Also, when we colonize the moon, we really need this currency up there, because really, we have to have Jules Verne honored in some fashion.)

Jinnet, thanks for mentioning the cards in your post. And it looks like I have quite a few other sites to check out. Good list!
