Wiki Brain Dump

A unique and distinctive culture emerges from the Burning Man experience. Rooted in the values expressed by the Ten Principles, this culture is manifested around the globe through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression. To many, it is a way of life.

Wiki Brain Dump

Postby chassy » Mon Jul 09, 2007 11:37 pm

I've been working on building a Burning Man brain dump (aka wiki). From talking to a few folks, there have been past efforts that never really took off. So far this is turning out a little differently - it already has well over 100 entries on things from acclimating and aluminet to water and waxing a bike chain - with sexier more interesting stuff sandwiched in between:

http://burnwiki.devildream.com

In addition to trying to get word out about what I hope is a valuable
resource, I'm looking a few kinds of help:
    -Anyone who wants to contribute their knowledge: There's an amazing amount of it that deserves to be shared far and wide.
    -Getting the word out. It's not useful if nobody knows about it.
    -Links from other sites: As an extension to the above, Burnwiki will only be useful if its findable, though it's already starting to do ok in Google.
    -Suggestions for a better name. Something catchier. I'm a utilitarian info-geek when it comes to the web.
If you want to get browsing, there's already some good stuff on there:
And if you want to jump in and add some stuff, here are a few things needing attention:


Thanks!

What Sputnik said... but really, is there anything inaccurate about that description of frozen goodness?

It would be nice if someone set up a page where we could change and add things as we all saw fit. :wink:

That's every page!!! Just click the 'edit' tab at the top of the page - no login required! (Well, almost every page has an edit tab - the homepage is a notable exception.)

If you want to create a page, just search to see if it exists, and you'll also be given an option to create the page. For example: http://burnwiki.devildream.com/Special:Search?search=Belgian+Waffle&go=Go

Hey, chassy! This will be my first burn, and I'm really liking what you've got here! I plan to look through it further - keep up the good work, and thanks!
