Topic: Steampunk anno 2018

The online fandom has died down a little. Many of the websites, blogs and communities I frequented in the heydays of 2006-10 have disappeared. (I'm actually working on a story for Never Was about old steampunk sites.) The Steampunk Forum used to be far more active. Steamfashion is dead. The Steampunk Empire has disappeared.

There does seem to be quite a bit of activity on social media, but it's hard to gauge.

Offline, we still get a steady stream of steampunk books, movies, art and music, but it does seem the hype has passed and now steampunk has become a "normal" genre.

I'm not sure about events and meet-ups, because I was never into that aspect of the steampunk community to begin with.

What are your experiences? Does it feel things have slowed down? If so, is that a bad thing?
