I had to stop working on my thesis and watch 60 Minutes. Graduation be damned, there was no choice to make. How could I miss a show regarding the new Industrial Revolution, where companies are scaling back on technology and using what would have been available in the early 1900’s? So very Steampunky, which is a large part of my doctoral thesis: Alternate Presents Made Possible With a Shift Of Common Advancements Starting in the Victorian Era. Hell, I’m conducting important research! Maybe I’ll even Steampunkify my graduation cap.
