Steampunk is the intersection of technology and romance. It's fashion, an aesthetic, a genre of fiction, a musical style, and a burgeoning sub-culture which combines the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things.
