In attendance were: DaShiv, scarabic, ctp, and yentruoc.

We're at Burning Man! Apologies for the low quality of the photos -- I have neither the access to nor inclination to use Photoshop out here on tthe playa. It's way too early to post any more photos from this year. If you'd like, you can surf the official Burning Man Image Gallery or check my user page for my photos from last year.

And now, once more into the breach for me!

(Postscript: Just found out about Katriena -- here's hoping everyone and their friends and family are safe.)

I love you, you crazy shutterbug. Tommorow when I'm wolfing shrimp and guzzling 32oz buckets of beer at this joint, I shall hoist one skyward in your name.

Buning Man folk are going to be in for perhaps more than a bit of culture shock when they come back to the grid, don't you think?

Shake it, don't break it, it took yo momma nine months to make it.

EB: Many or most BM folk probably already know about the hurricane, considering it's a demographic that prides itself on awareness and connectivity.

Ummm, perhaps not the best choice of words...

I'd doubt it - BM's all about switching off...

No kidding! When I'm having one, you have to POUND on the door to get my attention.

We had new people arriving in our camp daily and the first one in with the news filled us in. And he just happens to be a staff writer at a major national paper. Nothing like having the headlines hand delivered. As for "switching off," the city started a relief fund immediately, and all the radio stations in the city began disseminating regular news, calls for donations/prayers, as well as info on where you could go at Burning Man to use a sattelite phone if you needed to contact loved ones. There was a drive to get people to donate their shelters, too. BRC just happens to be full of quality temporary shelters (fancy that). Everyone was talking about it all the time, and I'm sure that the Temple was covered in N.O. related messages when it burned last night.

So yeah, tomcosgrave, listen to EB why doncha.
