Tip of the hat to filiment lights

From this site:

Steampunk could be described as a psychological reaction to the disposable products we encounter in the present day. I find myself drawn into the idea.

At the turn of the century, products were made by hand and by nessesity had to be built to last a century or two, these products very much had charactor. Unlike the featureless lumps of plastic these days.

In a time (if the theories are correct) of economic contraction or energy depleation I have the feeling that the craftsmen and methodology of thinking will be revived as more things will have to be made by hand instead of industrial machines bolting out endless supplies of meaningless disposable things.
