Steampunk! A little somethin' for the traditionalists...

In our field, there still tends to be a perceived divide between those who yearn for the more traditional tactile times of ye ol' librarianship (think: mahogany shelves filled with antique books lit moodily by brass and copper lamps) and those who loooooove the powerful and fast tech side of things.

Well, luckily, there are some punks out there trying to marry those two concepts...and it's called steampunk!

My buddy Kathleen sent me this fantastic article about it.
