So we’ve had steampunk and dieselpunk, cyberpunk and seapunk.
My I’m going to call my aesthetic ‘Telcopunk’.
I favor practicality.
I believe in universal service and universal access.
Research is important.
Unions are good.
Work locally. Think globally.
Distance is expensive.
Connecting people is important.
Information is and should be a primary concern of industry.
Designs should be made for durability.
An important job is building and maintaining infrastructure.
Privacy – but not security – is a core value, and standards of conduct reflect this.
Jeans. Work boots. Gloves.
Conceive things, then make them.
