Wednesday night, starting at 10pm, the Playaflies went on a group "swarm". Leading the procession were the 20 or so "version 2.0" rigs that were indeed sequenced. So you weren't hallucinating, or at least not that part. I think there were nearly 40 of us in all, including the 1.0 rigs that just blin...

Scooters are motorized vehicles

I'd be all for categorizing motorized scooters/mopeds with other motorized vehicles, and requiring that they be registered transpo for handicapped people, or mutated enough to be considered art cars.

Tristan speaks the truth. Michael Brown is the brainchild. In addition to the Chinchillas, Michael and his crew led a few workshops in 2007 to help others make their own playaflies.

There seem to be a lot of rumors surrounding population figures. The population numbers as of noon each day of the event are the basis of user fee payments to the BLM. As such, these official counts are not widely distributed. Peak population was the highest it's ever been this year. But it did not ...

Why? What is the reason behind not bringing bikes? Well, you won't be allowed to have your bike within the crowded sitting/standing only room ringing the burn. So you'll have to leave your bike somewhere outside the teeming circle of humanity. This makes it vulnerable to theft. This may make it har...

Just a quick shout out that the "black rock city" weather report on wunderground is actually the conditions reported at Lovelock, NV, which is about a hundred miles away(?) and at a different elevation than Black Rock City.

Why does anyone think it's easier to see over sitting people, if you're sitting?

One of the many reasons the Rangers prefer to have at least the first five rows around the man seated is that it creates a buffer zone in which people who may attempt to run into the fire before the structure has fallen will be more visible. The last thing I think anyone out there wants is for someo...

I think the big question is whether you will have things in your dome that would be permanently damaged by getting wet if it rains.
