Steampunk

What the heck is Steampunk?    
The first time I encountered the term I had no idea what it meant, but I had to find out. It sounded very exotic and hip. 

Steampunk is sub genre of fantasy, a sort of spin off of cyberpunk.  Read On… Fantasy Fiction: reading lists for every taste, defines steampunk as :”Set in the Victorian era in early industrial times, steampunk places magic alongside the dawn of technology. Anti-authority, anti-class-structure punk attitude is also on display.”

Not exactly what I had expected, but intriguing none the less.
Some suggested examples of steampunk are:
The Light Ages, by Ian R. Macleod
The List of Seven, by Mark Frost
