The official BORG2 web site, from which you can register to vote and browse candidate platforms (and even donate $$$!!), is here: http://www.BORG2.org/ I have a site that provides links to platforms as well as articles that have been written ...

BORG2: how to vote

As most of you know, BORG2 is a contingent within Burning Man that is lobbying loudly for more and better art on the playa, and is undertaking independent fundraising efforts to get more art out to BRC. BORG2 will be led by an art curator and a council of nine members. These positions are elected an...

ps. am not trying to make light of the allegations. Just as someone who is not privy to the inner workings of bmorg, nor to the inner-workings of NYC happenings, it seems like what happened here is that money was not as scrupulously accounted for as was required for the situation. And I personally c...

Eek

This discussion makes me realize how easy it must be to mess financial things up if you aren't extremely rigorous from the GET GO, because any money left in limbo may fuck things up royally later. It makes me think that if I end up part of the art council, someone is going to have to be sweating the...

As for the discussion about Lady Merv's involvement in the financing, I think it's good that concerns are discussed openly. But I think we'll all benefit if we can try to avoid being mean-spirited (that includes you, Jim, and even you a little bit Amy and just about every else.) > The whole Borg2 pr...

Amy, I think jim's response was visceral because he, like so many other people, have had personal experience with Lady Merv, and allegations she was involved in embezzlement have been hard to take. BUT I think it's good to see concerns raised. I think hearing from actiongrl and others here who have ...

I can't believe there's no discussion about this here on the eplaya. The borg2 tribe is jumping with ideas. If you're interested in this topic, consider reading the borg2 tribe over on tribe.

Amy Shapiro, especially you. You have really good concerns.

Leave Sudan alone. They can take care of their own problems. It is imperialistic to suggest that we, the U.S., sweep in there and "fix" things.

Turns out it's a browser issue. I have no problems connecting to gmail using Safari, but using Netscape 7.1 on OSX will not connect.

And that's all the thought I'm going to give it for now.

Thanks again IceP!!!!

Icepack, thanks for the feedback.

It's not my account that's the problem,
as I'm not even getting to the point of logging in.

But knowing gmail is still up for others gives

I think we will all eventually sacrifice our desire for privacy as we see that it brings less value to our lives than the speed and convenience with which we can do things, if we are willing to give up some privacy.
