Steampunk Hands 2016 – Favorite People – Josue Ramos

One of my favorite people in the steampunk community is author, organizer, and administrator Josue Ramos of Spain.


Steampunk Hands Around the World was literally created while I was instant messaging with Josue. We were talking about steampunk stuff, events and such, and I thought it was so great that technology enabled us to talk real time, even though we were half a world apart.

It was also inspiring to me that we could brainstorm steampunk ideas, share information, and generally get to know each other and build a friendship. That conversation really drove home the amazing connections we can and do have in our community, and I wanted to share that same feeling with everyone. That idea of sharing and building friendships led directly to Steampunk Hands Around the World.

We first met while he was blogging on MundoSteampunk (Steampunk World) and running The Golden Gear forum which attracted members far beyond the hub in Spain.

Josue is an author of several books, including Ecos de voces lejanas and he was an early organizer of EuroSteamCon Madrid, which was one of the Spanish groups taking part in the multi-group, multi-location EuroSteamCon convention event.

All of that aside, Josue has been upbeat and positive while facing personal challenges, creative and persistent with his goals and projects, and always supportive of other steampunks and their works.

If you are looking for people who help create and shape steampunk and the community, Josue is a great person to follow.

Thank you, Josue, for all of your writings and contributions, for the sharing and support, and especially for your encouragement of other steampunks to pursure their dreams, too.

Follow along each day as new entries are added to the Official Link List and join the discussions on the Facebook event page.
