Steampunk in the Christian Science Monitor


Came across a piece written about Steampunk in the Christian Science Monitor about Steampunk.  A even-handed piece, unlike hatchet jobs by other media outlets (*cough* NPR *cough*), it presents a well thought-out and encouraging view into the genre.  I can't say that I agree with all of the statements in the article (e.g. I would believe that the genre's roots go back a bit farther than the Wild Wild West), but the interviews with Steampunk notables (e.g. Mr. Jake Von Slatt (the Steampunk Workshop), Mr. Jeff Mach (from the Steampunk World's Fair), Mr. Patrick Berry (from the League of Victorian Imagineers)) provide a bit more insights into Steampunk for the non-Steampunk population.  Do consider paying it a visit and judge for yourself its merits - the piece is located at: http://www.csmonitor.com/The-Culture/Arts/2010/1229/Steampunk-The-new-Goth/(page)/3
