Not bad at all. You only missed four out of ten, and you were working with the early, buggy version that had an extra description.

Good creative thinking. Not all were what I had been thinking of, but I can see how most would apply. Raising Steam hadn't been published when I made the list, so that confuses the issue further. My original answers are earlier in the conversation, if you're curious. I'm glad to see people thinking about the themes!
