Current scientific discoveries are then placed side-by-side with these early world views. Taken as a whole, what they reveal is astonishing.

Project Spark is a free, versatile tool set that helps you build and edit your own games. Think of it as a shortcut for prospective developers. Starting with a fantasy-themed template, players can tweak the physics, graphics, and gameplay to make wild new creations.
We asked two of the developers on Project Spark, studio manager Saxs Persson and game designer Claude Jerome, to share with us the craziest creations that players have come up with in just two months of the Windows 8 open beta. Any of these can be downloaded, altered, and incorporated into different creations, allowing the community to remix and build on each other’s work. Nobody profits from a successful design on Project Spark, but notoriety and public acclaim are the primary incentives.
If these designs have you feeling inspired, the latest Project Spark beta hits Xbox One today. On the console, players will be able to to turn Project Spark into a motion-capture studio by recording original animations with the Kinect. With these new tools at their disposal, amateur game designers can make the gaming equivalent of a roaring fire without having to gather the wood.
Over the past month, Grammarly has flagged a few punctuation errors, and caught a few misspellings. Now, if they would only invent software that would take what I’m thinking and put it on a page.

Under the guiding hand of “Airship Ambassador” Kevin D Steil a group of steampunks from around the world have been talking about a global initiative to get steampunks to forge new links and friendships. This has long been a dream of mine too. I am very fortunate, I have managed to physically travel to many countries in the past and have always been delighted to visit new places and make new friends. More recently I have enjoyed attending steampunk events in several countries. I also have steampunk friends across the globe – some of whom I have yet to meet physically but due to the miracles of modern technology feel I can share ideas and dreams with.
The “Mission Statement” for hands around the world is posted here along with a link to Kevin’s introduction to the project.
