Dear all, While I am aware of what the two terms mean, I have no idea on how much steampunk or punk rock(!) even, have in common with the ERE.

Contributions would be welcome.

Punk rock has a strong DIY, anticonsumerist, individualist ethos, all compatible with ERE.

Steampunk, or at least von Slatt's conception of it, has a DIY ethic of building things to personal tastes rather than buying mainstream products.

KevinW, Thanks for the Heads-Up. I am travelling this weekend. I won't be able to look into until next week. If you have some spare time, I would appreciate it if you could bodge up a small page and set up the links. If you're also busy, I will set up the page when Ireturn next week.

I added the pages. I think punk rock is on firm footing, though steampunk's connection to ERE is shakier. Steampunk may be borderline and I wouldn't object strongly to removing it from the list.

I hope your trip goes well.
