I recently took a gander at Bioshock, a new videogame on the XBox 360 - though its inspiration was Randian objectivism, I got the same vibe I would get from a great steampunk story.
My favorite point from the article: "There is here a deep historical connection to the spirit of Victorian invention, Di Filippo says. During the Victorian era, the amateur could still compete with the professional in a number of crafts. It was a time when naturalists and other nonprofessional scientists were responsible for amassing important collections of biological specimens and for naming a number of asteroids and stars."
