The Crossroads of the Aether
Is there any actual group in San Francisco for Steampunk? I don't see any events going on, any meetings, or whatever.
I know that a lot of organizations are having troubles keeping people's attention in between events. I really want to get involved locally, but I'm not seeing any opportunities to do so.
There's the Steam Federation-Bay Area, but nothing specifically San Francisco that I can tell. the Federation has a facebook page. It has some meet ups down in San Mateo i think. I have what is now an annual Emperor Norton walking tour in January, so theres one event! :)
I looked at the Federation's calendar, and everything seems to be out-City.
One of the reasons I don't have a Facebook page is that I tend to post a lot of content that I have created, and I don't want to lose ownership or control of it. Plus the recent rash of people trying to fraudulently claim ownership of content posted to Facebook, by others, has me twice as cautious.
there doesnt seem to be any movies planned for this month, but perhaps next month.
I know that Wicked Grounds would be open to allowing us to meet there, unless we got too large (and then it would only be a question of space, not welcome).
As far as interest, I see quite a few people here from San Francisco. But it's difficult to get people to come to events if there are no events being held. And they may not be aware of Steam, I know I was not.
