MHMS Teachers to join just click JOIN this SPACE!external image jointhis.png

We may have started this wiki, but we all own it and can change, add, edit, and make this our own....
though if you're not an MHMS teacher we'd rather you not add pages or edit our stuff...but if you want to just use our pages or link to them feel free to! you don't have to join to do that!

MHMS Collaboration:
"Rather than saddle one person with the responsibility of maintaining this information, this entire site is what is known as a "wiki." From the Hawaiian meaning "FAST" Wikis are special websites that can be edited by anyone."

(For more information on wikis you can read their definition on Wikipedia.)**

So, what is steampunk?

"Steampunk lives in the reincarnated collective past of shadows and ignored alleys. It is a historical wunderkabinet, which promises, like Dr. Caligari's, to wake the somnambulist of the present to the dream-reality of the future. We are archaeologists of the present, reanimating a hallucinatory history."

"It's the Victorian era not as it was but as it should have been" - Shaunathan Sprocket - New Babbage
