The Steampunk Empire

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.

the Sci Fi event, SF in SF happens about once a month downtown. A non profit has a double feature of sci fiction movies, sometimes with a Steampunk connection.  We could look into having a meetup and movie type deal the next time to get the ball rolling in activity here in the city.
Any information on where and when that is?

there doesnt seem to be any movies planned for this month, but perhaps next month.  

The Society is alive and well. They have weekly regular meetings and special events every month. They've been running most of this through their Facebook group page, which may be why you don't see much of it here.

I'll post the link in a bit.
I would appreciate that.
Aha, there it is!
Let's start a group specifically for residents of the city, of course anyone could come but it would be nice to have a group that meets right here. I for one have never driven a motorized vehicle and have no plans to learn how any time soon.
I know that the Steam Federation has been wanting to extend to SF, but they've run into two problems:

1) Difficulty in finding a suitable meeting location
2) Not much interest from SF steampunks (or perhaps not enough of them?)

The first one has been the bigger issue. It took a bit to get things going in the East Bay; originally, the Federation operated out of the South Bay and Lower Peninsula. Interested parties need only be vocal and resourceful, and we can get the group extended to SF soon!

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.
