hometown boy totally wired for steam

Childhood chum and early inspiration Jake Von Slatt has landed himself in the pages of Wired magazine! Meet Mr. Steampunk - Wired 6.29.07

As an impressionable highschool techno-dork, I remember tearing my gaze away from Von Slatt's lovely sister just long enough to admire his hand-made platter of vintage 2-button TV remotes, each wired to activate a different gizmo in the room.
