The Smart Set, a website I love, takes a look at steampunk!

It may be somewhat dreary outside, but that makes for good steampunkish weather, apparently, as there's a lot going on this month. The Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibit on Victorian photocollage is now open, for example. Next weekend brings the 2010 Annual Mutter Ball in Philadelphia ("19th-century inspired garb encouraged!") and the Antique Science & Retro-Tech Swap in Irving, Texas ("World Championship Slide Rule Competition at 2 pm!"). All of these are highly recommended.

And for the futurists: new innovations in hearing aids may mean wearing them on the back teeth, not the ear. (The possibilities for augmented reality are also mentioned. Oooo.)
