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.

Utilitarianism rules.

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.
