Transcript: October 26th 2012: Steampunk Mashups – Mixing Genres and Influences

Smash ‘em together! What goes with Steampunk, what doesn’t work? Tonight we discuss how seemingly disparate elements get mixed into Steampunk, and which ones are successful (or not) and why.

To read the transcript in chronological order, start from the bottom and scroll up.

Update: #SteampunkChat has new hosts for the Fall/Winter session, with either myself (@artificer13) or @Jenny_Schwartz + guest at the helm.
