Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction, frequently featuring elements of fantasy, that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used — usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England — but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of “the path not taken” of such technology as dirigibles, analog computers, or digital mechanical computers (such as Charles Babbage’s Analytical engine); these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or with a presumption of functionality
Has this blog gotten uber techy? Me thinks so, the design has almost dropped off and I am not posting nearly enough music.
I’ll get on it.
I think it could be a great thing for work, but I am not sure. The plan would be to get the least expensive model, I think it is 16gs and wifi only. If it works out that I am able to use it for bids, billing and email on the fly and saves us time on paperwork I will pick up the 64 gig wifi and 3g. Or wait until the 2nd gen device.
That’s the plan
and I’m stickin’ to it.
