First Contest

Inspired by an article on Silver Goggles ("Friendly" Tech) I'm holding a contest. I'd like submissions of the finest FRIENDLY1 personally carried steampunk devices that you wear.

It last ran in 2008 and was so successful they postponed it for a year to make sure it remained novel. I'm not entirely certain how that works, but boy was this year's a hum-dinger! Baron von Borg, Lady...

Steampunk picnic, Brisbane

As the weather's still cold enough to get away with layering, it's a great time in Brisbane to get out to a morning tea/ picnic in the Roma Street parklands. ROSEA and FAUST will be there, and we want to meet as many other individuals and groups with Steampunk aficionado-ness to socialise and talk shop. If I...
