I would like to make a guide on Steampunk, with help Answered

I would like to collaborate with others in this thread, and then when all parties are satisfied, create an instructable that explains steampunk. Browsing the answers section I've seen several people asking what steampunk even is, and I've also seen some attempts to explain it that I felt didn't do justice to the movement. I'm by no means an expert, just someone with an interest that has done a little general research, and has attempted to make a few objects myself. I want to make a comprehensive guide, if you would, that covers: the steampunk movement in a general sense, how it originated, trends and motifs it exhibits as a genre, where and how it is represented in literature, perhaps even an inaugural "getting started" type of section for people that are interested but don't know how to begin, and of course, showcasing several other instructables and projects people have already contributed. 

I would love to hear back from people, I do plan on messaging several, likely off of the featured page of the Steampunk Channel, inviting them to come and give their two cents. I believe that Steampunk is something worth bringing to the foreground and promoting, as many people don't understand it, or have the wrong idea of it, where it is truly a brilliant movement.

This Wikipedia article was my guide into Steampunk from the moment I became curious about it.
Plus the many Instructables for Steampunk things -- A lot of the Instructablers insert cogent remarks about their genre as they are explaining the aesthetics of their projects, which helped me understand their motives a lot better.
