Re: Plug & Play Camping

I get it. I am referring to the rather pretentious transition of cameraman to "videographer", as though it matters. Your work stands, ... or not. Absolutely and totally agree! I'm a post production dude who use to work on SGI's and now you can run the same software on iMacs, lol. Anyway d...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

Like incidental music? I just don't recall that term being used. Must be like "videographer". I've been marveling lately at how thorough Apatow is with that sort of thing. There must be thirty minutes of different music on one of his dvds. I'm trying to follow you but no not like videogra...

Lol, a person who designs sound for film, video games, etc. Someone who might be a member of the AES (Audio Engineering Society). I don't mean a DJ or beat producer...although they create sounds too sometimes! :wink:

Re: Bitching about music on playa

This is the attitude that saddens me. As a DJ with dusty white skin, and a lover of more types of music than you (ignore the sweeping generalization), I must say that if YOU want your favorite type of music on the playa, then YOU will need to bring it. Don't complain that you can't drink Heinekin (...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

Curious response Simon...you are in a bit of the chapel perilous zone methinks...damned either way. What I mean is that the quality of playa music has never been out and out amazing, with more of a copy cat trendy vibe each year, and now with EDM being the "next-big-thing" suddenly...how d...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

http://bit.ly/My3BQ6 Um, is this supposed to be slap on the wrist approach that quiets the grumbling community? I'll forgive the typos but the sentiment feels very rushed. I am curious how this will play out...especially when more people are concerned about tickets than theme camps. I am of the opin...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

speaking of plug and play... with deception at its core, here is another clear example of how and why these individuals and their "camps" destroy the community that has taken so many years to build. http://blog.burningman.com/2012/05/tenprinciples/how-not-to-burn-commodifying-burning-man/ ...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

I want to hop back in here a second to try to pull the discussion back to a central concept of the general way burning man "works" (that perhaps being the muddiest gray zone of them all) All this talk of commodification and drawing lines, etc misses a particularly important point that was ...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

we nearly all think our project/contribution is the best and most important thing at burning man. in a way it is...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

You seem to think that its a teeter totter scale, that you can outweigh the damage of turning burning man into a commodity with contributing interactivity. thank you so much lemur for articulating to Janus some of the issues I was trying to bring up and a double thank you for clearly stating what i...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

@cosmisgiggle Yes, after 13 years of camping and watching Burning Man evolve, this is what makes sense to me... Let's keep the conversation going --- it's really good. I think what's important here is that there are different models for Plug and Play and the evolution of sharing resources is about ...
