[2013/10/20 14:16]  Bookworm Hienrichs: The very first Salon was held October 12th five years ago ((2008)), in which Jedburgh Dagger, Beq Janus, and Django Yifu discussed the subject of curses.
[2013/10/20 14:16]  Bookworm Hienrichs: A very relevant topic at the time, as it was not long after the infamous Monster Hand incident, and concurrent with Miss Janus finding a strange amulet at the bottom of the sea.
[2013/10/20 14:16]  Bookworm Hienrichs: In the time since then, we've covered a wide variety of topics, including weapons, submersibles, villains, heroines, photography, libraries, tinies, vampires, science, and even whimsy.
[2013/10/20 14:17]  Bookworm Hienrichs: (Transcripts of all Salons, by the way, are available at
[2013/10/20 14:17]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Two years ago, custody of the Salon passed from its founders--Viv Trafalger, Serafina Puchkina, Jedburgh Dagger, and Jasper Kiergarten--to Baron Klaus Wulfenbach... and, I suppose, myself.

[2013/10/20 14:17]  Bookworm Hienrichs: I hope we have continued the Salons in the tradition laid down of:
[2013/10/20 14:17]  Bookworm Hienrichs: "Education, entertainment, tea, and the occasional blowing-up of things, contemplation of Steampunkery, and the wearing of hats."
[2013/10/20 14:18]  Teapot Mk 2: Have some tea.
[2013/10/20 14:18]  Bookworm Hienrichs: And now, our esteemed AEther Salon host, Baron Klaus Wulfenbach!

[2013/10/20 14:21]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): I have started a sub-tradition of taking the Anniversary salon, every October, to open it up to the Salonistas themselves, to see what subjects you may want to entertain, and to take volunteers for those wishing to present themselves.
[2013/10/20 14:21]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): We already have the Princess of Winterfell presenting Flirting! in February, for example.

[2013/10/20 14:22]  Nika Thought-werk (robotnika): /me giggles.

[2013/10/20 14:24]  Gabrielle Riel: Sure! If I am still here then. I likely will be in some form or fashion.
[2013/10/20 14:24]  Bookworm Hienrichs: /me is imagining the entire hour now being spent on speculations on those topics...
[2013/10/20 14:24]  Bookworm Hienrichs: /me pinches her nose, even as she laughs quietly.

[2013/10/20 14:28]  Satu Moreau: /me is terribly unmechanically inclined, it's a wonder he ever got into steampunkery
[2013/10/20 14:28]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): You do not have to be a current expert - that might be part of the process, in fact. Your research will be enlightening by itself.
[2013/10/20 14:28]  Wildstar Beaumont: LOL @ Miss Jed
[2013/10/20 14:28]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): Herr Satu, what about telling us how you make your creations?
[2013/10/20 14:29]  Hysshia a'Suolla an Isala Ph.D. (hysshia): hmm, to give a lecture,.. i haven't done that in ages,.. i wonder if i would dare to impose,, i am afraid i am simply too busy, my excuses...
[2013/10/20 14:29]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): Every creator is different, and the process is fascinating.
[2013/10/20 14:29]  Bookworm Hienrichs: /me listens to crickets chirping...
[2013/10/20 14:29]  Nika Thought-werk (robotnika): /me asks "Would any like to know of clockworks here and in other lands ... or if I was late in the year for my talk ... I could speak of my travels?"
[2013/10/20 14:30]  Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): rofl book
[2013/10/20 14:30]  Bookworm Hienrichs: That would be wonderful, Miss Nika!
[2013/10/20 14:30]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): Fraulein Nika, I should like both.
[2013/10/20 14:30]  Jedburgh Dagger (jedburgh30.dagger): Do you want a talk on the history of law enforcement?

[2013/10/20 14:30]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Yes, please!
[2013/10/20 14:30]  Nika Thought-werk (robotnika): For the travels, may I be last on the schedule, please?
[2013/10/20 14:31]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): Certainly, Nika.
[2013/10/20 14:31]  Nika Thought-werk (robotnika): /me curtsies and bows her head low.
[2013/10/20 14:31]  Bookworm Hienrichs: I do want to say something at this juncture...
[2013/10/20 14:32]  Nika Thought-werk (robotnika): /me listens closely.
[2013/10/20 14:32]  Bookworm Hienrichs: I know that at least a few people have expressed reservations about some of the topics we've had over the past couple of years. That they're... shall we say, not in the tradition of most of the earlier Salons.
[2013/10/20 14:32]  Satu Moreau: A talk on mesh creation for use in SL? I suppose I could manage, though I don't use the most commonly used program
[2013/10/20 14:32]  Mosseveno Tenk: /me coughs
[2013/10/20 14:32]  Jimmy Branagh: ((kback-reviewing))
[2013/10/20 14:32]  Bookworm Hienrichs: In other words, not particularly applicable to Victorian/Steampunk times.

[2013/10/20 14:33]  Bookworm Hienrichs: It's not that there's a lack of topics in that area. I can think of plenty.
[2013/10/20 14:33]  Satu Moreau: Though I think Vic has done a better job of mesh talk before
[2013/10/20 14:33]  Satu Moreau: XD And a lot briefer
[2013/10/20 14:33]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Besides crime, there's Medicine. Architecture. Mining and manufacturing. Food production and distribution. Transportation. Weddings and/or funerals. Servants. Education. The art of the social call. Shopping.
[2013/10/20 14:33]  Max Islay: /me eyes all the potential pockets to pick
[2013/10/20 14:33]  Bookworm Hienrichs: The problem is finding people who are willing to take on these types of topics.
[2013/10/20 14:33]  Pippy (pippyfox): I went to a salon about dinner where and hows
[2013/10/20 14:34]  Mosseveno Tenk: /me mutters something about the 19th century invention of christmas
[2013/10/20 14:34]  Pippy (pippyfox): Victorians were crazy
[2013/10/20 14:34]  Hysshia a'Suolla an Isala Ph.D. (hysshia): The last one i attended, was, i think, about steampunk literature,..quite a while ago..

[2013/10/20 14:34]  Mosseveno Tenk: bugger
[2013/10/20 14:35]  Gabrielle Riel: /me smiles
[2013/10/20 14:35]  Bookworm Hienrichs: In broadening our focus, it has enabled us to recruit more speakers--and more attendees.
[2013/10/20 14:35]  Mosseveno Tenk: did i just get volunteered for decmber?
[2013/10/20 14:35]  Bookworm Hienrichs: I think you did.
[2013/10/20 14:35]  Max Islay: ((why does steam santa make me think of santa on futurama? lol))
[2013/10/20 14:35]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): You might have done, sir.
[2013/10/20 14:35]  Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): looks like it Mr Tenk lmao
[2013/10/20 14:35]  Mosseveno Tenk: viv never knew where to point that gun...
[2013/10/20 14:36]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Personally, I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing to try to, at least sometimes, appeal to those outside the Steamlands.
[2013/10/20 14:36]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Who knows? We might suck a few of them in.
[2013/10/20 14:36]  Bookworm Hienrichs: /me grins.
[2013/10/20 14:36]  Vernden Jervil: there are people outside the steamlands?
[2013/10/20 14:36]  Jedburgh Dagger (jedburgh30.dagger): or not.

[2013/10/20 14:36]  Satu Moreau: I may know someone who can give a talk on butchers of the time.

[2013/10/20 14:36]  Gabrielle Riel: /me chuckles
[2013/10/20 14:36]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Or not. But at least we can try.
[2013/10/20 14:36]  Satu Moreau: He's a traditional butcher IRL
[2013/10/20 14:37]  Bookworm Hienrichs: That would be interesting, Satu!
[2013/10/20 14:37]  Nika Thought-werk (robotnika): /me nods and smiles wonders if someone might speak on Victorian chocolates ...

[2013/10/20 14:37]  Sidonie Ancelin (ancelin): What about a talk about victorian medicine?
[2013/10/20 14:38]  Bookworm Hienrichs: /me nods. "That's one of the topics I listed, and one I'd definitely like to hear about."
[2013/10/20 14:38]  Nika Thought-werk (robotnika): /me nods at Miss Sid, forcing a cough.
[2013/10/20 14:38]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Who would be willing to do that one?
[2013/10/20 14:38]  Jedburgh Dagger (jedburgh30.dagger): Worse comes to worse
[2013/10/20 14:38]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Or was that a volunteering question?

[2013/10/20 14:39]  Sidonie Ancelin (ancelin): No, I can't volunteer. The typist is at work off the grid during the salons.
[2013/10/20 14:39]  Vernden Jervil: it was that long ago wasn't it?
[2013/10/20 14:39]  Kghia Gherardi: thank you - her book group inspired the suggestion
[2013/10/20 14:39]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Though there's likely more that can be covered on that topic.
[2013/10/20 14:40]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): Of course there is.
[2013/10/20 14:40]  Bookworm Hienrichs: She talked about recipes, pasteurization, equipment...
[2013/10/20 14:40]  Bookworm Hienrichs: Not so much of the actual formal dining experience.
[2013/10/20 14:40]  Bookworm Hienrichs: So that's something that could be done.
[2013/10/20 14:41]  Ceejay Writer: I really enjoyed researching that salon. I encourage others of similar sorts.
[2013/10/20 14:41]  Jimmy Branagh: SInce I'm building a medical establishment of sorts, I will take on that subject. Late in the year, please
