CIMG5331 A costumed character, who went by Professor Konrad, at the Futures Past steampunk party at SXSW 2007. I don’t know if that’s just what you do when you are a Texan mad scientist.

The “Futures Past” steampunk party was thrown by EFF and several other organizations at the SXSW conference on March 12, 2007 at Scholz Garden in Austin, Texas. I didn’t know many people there, so I went there mostly to see the costumes. Ah, the costumes! Unfortunately, I don’t know the names of any of the people I took pictures of. On the technical side of things, Austin’s own Robot Group had an exhibit there, showing many all sorts of new flashing, singing, wiggling mechanical creatures I haven’t seen since their last exhibit.
