For those that wish to get involved in this project, of which the discussion is still ongoing on a special Facebook group as far as we're aware (just mail Kevin Steil to be included if it's something that you find interesting, or to get more information), so we are sharing it here for those interested.
Any initiative that is positive to steampunk as a whole is to be encouraged after all.
We realise that at the moment things are still pretty vague, but if you're interested in participating after reading the text below, from the Decimononic tumblr account (who are in on the project), don't hesitate to drop Kevin a line for more info/to find out how you can contribute.
"Just as current day expressions of steampunk are not limited to the literature where it began, the people in the steampunk community are not bound to any one geographical region. Steampunk appears in many forms, and with its popularity, the community has grown to encompass the world.
The celebration and sharing of that global association is at the heart of a new project, Steampunk Hands Around the World, by Kevin Steil, the creator and editor of steampunk news and information resource website, Airship Ambassador.
With more than three dozen steampunk creators – bloggers, authors, event organizers, and others – also participating, the month long project is a multi format media presentation about the international connections and communications in the community, for steampunks and non-steampunks alike.
Beginning Sunday, February 2nd, and continuing until Friday, February 28th, the group will show and share that steampunks everywhere are linked together and that new friends are waiting in every conversation.
Steampunk, in its many forms, brings people together in an inclusive and helpful network of similar mind. From sharing book and music review opinions, to playing the newest games and sharing DIY information on fashion and props, the steampunk community easily and comfortably brings together people ages eight to eighty in ways not often seen in other communities.
he full and updated-daily list of participating websites, blogs and events will be posted in the kick-off blog on the Airship Ambassador blog site.
