Re: Ideating a meal prep service for BM 2019

I'm moving this over to the Recommendations board, since that's a better fit for 'what do I buy' threads. Buying meals from others tends to be awkward at best for all the reason mentioned above. There are other considerations. There are plenty of operators out there looking to prey on the lazy peopl...

Re: Service Camps: Heroes or Plight of BRC?

That's kind of the thing about BRC. Every camp gets to figure out what matters to them, what amenities and creature comforts that they want to build and bring for each other... and sometimes to gift to the community. On its own, that's okay (and encouraged). It's when that stuff gets outsourced to a...

Brainy Bar 2019

Yes, the Brainy Bar will be back! https://78.media.tumblr.com/c73bbbfcbe73aa0b2dd59a138eb3868a/tumblr_pcra0caVTB1qkijtto1_1280.png We're expa...

That said, what you're describing is largely the whole concept of organizing a camp at Burning Man. Connect with some like-minded individuals who want to share resou...

Re: Service Camps: Heroes or Plight of BRC?

As others have said, I don't think there's anything wrong with those camps. They're awesome for bringing and sharing their gifts and talents. To me it's a similar deal as with the food camps or the bar camps or any other thing out there. What they do is awesome. Especially when you consider some of ...

Re: There's nothing wrong with basing cleanup deposits on exodus cleanup results

There are as many different ways to run a camp as there are camps on the playa. The whole thing, with any camp, is buyer beware. To ItalyPlaya... If you don't take the time and interest in looking into a camp (or for that matter what other camps do), meeting or connecting with campmates beforehand a...

Re: Advice on a volunteer idea

It's potentially a great idea, but be careful. Going it alone the first time out may make your journey that much more difficult. I'd suggest perusing the listings of camps at past burns and find some of the groups that already do this kind of stuff (it's awesome, and massive thanks to the helpful pe...

Re: Which new Ticketing Provider instead of Ticketfly?

I have not seen any announcement that would indicate a change in ticketing provider for the 2019 event. As far as I'm aware, they're still using Ticketfly (which initially was independent, then later acquired by Pandora, and more recently owned by Eventbrite). I'm sure certain aspects under the hood...

Re: Marion Goodell speaks.

It's been more than one camp per year (and worth noting that Dancetronauts issues were related to mutant vehicle operations). Burning Man generally treats such matters confidentially, and only mentions by name when they feel it's absolutely necessary. I can respect that, in my opinion once you go do...

From the Burning Man Journal ... As we reflect on Black Rock City 2018 and begin preparing for 2019, one area we believe needs some extra love and attention is our approach to theme camps and other “residential” areas of Black Rock City. For our purposes, “residential Black Rock City” is defined as ...
