Along with New Babbage a "steam punk community" but one that is a bit more suburban. They are also having the season of winder. Caledon is much of an an imagination, not only does it re-imagine the Victorian age but it makes it look like a pleasan gated community whereas New Babbage capture some of the crudeness of the Industrial Revolution.
One might wonder why there is a need to re-imagine the much despised Victorian age as a post Vernian suburbs? Perhaps because the Internet is the child of the Empire of the Europeans. The ideological assumptions under the Internet were formed in that time, and by re-imagining that time people can redeem the Empire in the face of post-colonial challenges.
