let the yuppies pay more to go - they can afford it. artists need a way to fund their trip, and this is the way forward.

hey - times are rough, especially for artists. BM tickets can be scalped because yuppies have homogenized the city. i say - take whatever you can grab! yuppies have no problem paying over $1k per ticket. i work in a coffee house and share a house with 10 people - i'm an artist, and this is an arts festival. who is going to show the yuppies a good time if people like me can't afford to go? DPW? i think not.
burning man is at a stage of evolution that tells us: profit at will! ahead warp factor 10, scotty!
What he said.........Bunch of greedy fucking bastards. Register for what you and your immediate family need, no more. If the event degenerates to hoarders and scalpers over-buying just in case, it probably is not worth attending. If like Minxy sez, buying tickets for folks that don't get their act together until too late, well it should really be too late for them. They really are not 'self-reliant'. And to those that buy a bunch and scalp them on ebay with enuff mark-up to cover their own event costs, you are people I do not want to camp anywhere near.
