In 2001 I went to Burning Man for the first time. I went by myself. I didn’t know anyone there. (Thanks to Mike L I got introduced to some Burners.) I drove up with someone I met just before the long ride from Berkley. It was a formative time in my life to say the least. While there I shot video of “The Man” with my crappy hi8 video camera. I made this video as a token of thanks and love. Its for the people on the playa that fed me and treated me like a King. For some reason I didn’t share this with too many of them. I’m not sure why. Now just about six years later its online. Funny how times burns.
Here is a vlog post I made about live blogging events and why its important. Basically I discuss how sharing information about important events can increase local knowldege and get more people civically involved. More information is better. (I use OrangePolitics as an example. Their live blogging of Carolina North events has been very valuable.) Let me know what you think in the comments. Thanks.
