From their website:
“On May 12th & 13th, 2012, the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation presents the third annual Watch City Festival! This is a city-wide event that celebrates the imagination, history and ingenuity behind Steampunk. For one weekend the city of Waltham is transformed into an alternate reality “trapped in time” where the lines between science fiction and the industrial revolution are blurred to bring guests into an immersible experience like no other!
The main events will take place on Saturday and Sunday at locations in central Waltham, MA. Citizens of Watch City are also invited to join us for special preview events the evening of Friday, May 11th.
Special guest A.E. Cleanslate, Maceholder of New Babbage (the steampunk city of Second Life) will be delivering his lecture on ‘What Today’s Innovators Can Learn From The Victorian Age’.”
Actually that last bit is not entirely true. My typist will be in attendance, however. Probably with a tophat. I’ll wear my New Babbage button so I can be recognized.
