What is the latest JRS Volume / Issue?

Postby junglebrad » Fri Jan 27, 2012 7:39 pm

The last one I've received was bman-announce Digest, Vol 67, Issue 2. I even checked the spam folder and I think I've missed one or two. Can't find the last one that everyone is currently talking about. :?

YES! The theme is here!

But first (it's important!): The registration period for the Burning Man 2012 ticket Main
Sale wrapped up last Sunday night, and our ticket vendor is currently de-duping and
cleaning up the registrant database (including removing known scammers), before we do the
drawing for the three pricing tiers on January 31 and February 1.

And guess what? Turns out, people are VERY EAGER to go to Burning Man this year. So
much so, in fact, that they found creative ways to increase their odds of getting tickets
in the Main Sale. As a result, there are a lot more tickets being requested than there
are tickets available -- an inordinately large number, in fact, and far more than we
projected even after last year's sold-out event. It seems that people a) likely got their
friends, family and campmates to order tickets as well, and/or b) requested more tickets
than they actually need.

So the unfortunate net result is that there will be a lot of people who aren't awarded
tickets from the Main Sale ... BUT DO NOT FEAR!! Because this means that there will be a
large number of tickets in circulation within the existing community, tickets that simply
need to be redistributed to those who need them. And we have information about how we're
going to help you all do that, while thwarting scammers and scalpers, below.

It's up to all of us to decide how this all plays out ... we can work together in our
communities to ensure that most everybody who wants a ticket to Burning Man can get one,
and avoid falling prey to third-party price gouging. Just as we're able to create the
world's largest Leave No Trace event -- against all odds, in the middle of the remote
desert -- we can see this challenge through together as well. Read on to learn how we can
make this happen.

The Man burns in 218 days, and we expect to see YOU there.

BURNING MAN 2012 ART THEME: FERTILITY 2.0

Burning Man's art theme for 2012 will be Fertility 2.0, wherein we contemplate the
tendency of any being or living system to create abundant life.

Read the full theme text here:

http://www.burningman.com/art_of_burnin ... theme.html


**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**\<
;>/**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**


THE LATEST BURNING MAN TICKET INFORMATION

Here's the latest on the Main Sale for tickets to Burning Man 2012, which will be wrapped
up by February 1 ...

It is clear that many people seeking Burning Man tickets for 2012 padded their odds by
requesting more tickets than they need, and having friends, family and campmates ALSO
register, ALSO requesting more tickets than they need. There are an unexpectedly high
number of registrants, and they are requesting 1.7 tickets/person on average.

As a result, a significant number of people will not be awarded tickets in the Main Sale.


And while it may seem at first blush that there's a shortage of tickets available, the
reality is that there are now a lot of tickets held by our community that will now simply
be redistributed to those who need them. Based on analysis we hold a strong belief that
things will settle out over the course of time, once that redistribution takes place,
such that most everybody who wants a ticket will find their way to one.

In order to facilitate the redistribution of those extra tickets now in circulation, we
have set up the Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP). The STEP is a web-based system
that will allow Burners to sell their unneeded tickets, and Burners wanting tickets to
access them. This will allow for safe and secure transactions in a central place for
community-monitored, face-value resales.

We would like to reinforce that we all share responsibility for preventing the scalping
of Burning Man tickets. Burners can commit to only selling their tickets at face value,
and to never buying tickets above face value. Friends don't let friends buy from
scalpers! We can work together by using STEP, keeping a vigilant eye out for scams and
inflated-price vending, and reporting known scammers on our ePlaya ticketing thread,
here:

viewforum.php?f=290

As always, you can find full information about Burning Man tickets on our ticket page:

http://tickets.burningman.com

... and there's more about it here on the Burning Blog:

http://bit.ly/z7oHsg

Burning Man actively discourages the use of secondary resources (eBay, Craigslist,
StubHub, etc.) for the resale of tickets, and we encourage those who do not obtain
tickets from the Main Sale/Open Sale to utilize community-centric sources to keep a
handle on this process together. Please use STEP and/or direct local connections to known
Burners to find the tickets you seek. We will post information on how to access STEP next
week.

BRC DEPARTMENT OF MOBILITY IS HERE FOR MOBILITY-IMPAIRED BURNERS!

Dani writes:

"Just wanted to let our community know that there is a camp for your
mobility-impaired Burners.

I'm The Rat Lady and I am finally home! I know I thought for 15 years that I could never
go to Burning Man. I use a wheelchair, don't have access to a generator and thought when
it came to Burning Man, it is just too big, too dusty, to hard without a Cabana Boy (& I
know I can't afford one of those!). Well, I discovered last year that it IS possible for
me to go to the Burn!!

The Black Rock City Department of Mobility Camp is a Theme camp dedicated to gifting
mobility services to our mobility-impaired Burners. It's by no means a luxury Camp, we
are still dusty, many of our members bring small tents to do their camping, it's still
hot and cold, but we do make it possible!

We are on an electric grid, important if you need to recharge a mobility scooter,
wheelchair/powerchair, oxygen concentrator, c-pap machine etc., Our camp is wheelchair
friendly, all of our paths are designed with chairs and golf carts in mind. Our Sun
Shower rig is wheelchair accessible by a ramp. Our kitchen area is wheelchair friendly as
well.

For the city at large, we take out our fleet of mutated vehicles that can hold up to 14
at a time, with up to 5 wheelchairs, 4 times a day for deep playa art tours, so that the
mobility impaired among us still have access to the Temple, The Man and the ART! We also
shuttle out to the two main burns and some smaller burns as well.

This year we would like to expand into "Short Bus" service along "D"
street from the 3 and 9 o'clock plazas to the three Arctic Ices, the three medicals, post
office, Playa Info, The Man and our Camp in center camp. For those wheelies that are
camping with others, you might want to position yourself near "D" Street.

We currently have room in our Camp for 25+ Burners in wheelchairs and 15 with mobility
scooters and we can always welcome some able bodies too. Everyone is expected to do as
much as they are able to contribute to our mission.

Please share this information with your friends and Camp members so that they can share
it with their friends who always thought they could never come! Or with those able bodies
who have a driving desire to make things inclusive for all! We would welcome both! Camp
dues go toward in camp services, with anything left over going toward our Community
Services for all, including those temporarily impaired.

We are also seeking financial donations toward our goals of the "Short Bus
Line" and infrastructure, for the "Short Bus Line" others with Art Cars to
expand our community services. If your Camp would like to help get the Line going please
contact us.

If you would like to do a fund raiser to help toward the "Short Bus Line" , or
bring your own "Short Bus"/Art Car, or help us in any way, we would welcome
anything most gratefully.

If any of you have an Art Car with wheelchair access, we would love to have you camp with
us or if it's a very large Art car, coordinate with us to stop by our Camp, so that the
mobility impaired can ride.

Our Website is http://BlackRockCityMobility.org It is still being added to, but can give
a lot of info right now.
Feel free to contact us at brcmobility@gmail.com with any questions or to apply to join
our camp! Please no Spam!

Services Coordinator
Black Rock City Department of Mobility"

THE FIRST UNOFFICIAL BORDER BURNERS "ORPHAN BURN"

Here’s a great story we’d like to pass along from the Burning Blog ... as our global
community has grown, we’ve heard about more and more “Orphan Burns”, where Burners who
can’t make it to the playa for Burning Man get together to celebrate on Burn night.
Here's one that happened in El Paso last year:

IS BURNING MAN A "WHITE PEOPLE THING"?

Caveat explores an interesting socio-cultural question around Burning Man ...

"A close friend of mine was asking me about Burning Man. She’s a black woman from
Brooklyn. 'Nope,' she said eventually, with some frustration. 'I don’t think I’ll be
going to Burning Man!'

'Why not?' I asked. She should. She’s magnificent.

'It’s a white people thing!'

Whoa. I asked her to tell me more about that."

In the last JRS, we neglected to include the link to this video ... because we're

Here's a definite nominee for the best Burning Man video of 2011 ... and it's proving to

AROMATHERAPY ENTHUSIASTS: JOIN IN THE AROMATHERA POTTY PROJECT

Tracey writes:

"Burners have said that there's no sense of smell on the Playa.
Yet visitors to the porta potties testify otherwise.
I am Tracey of Lamay Camp, Kidsville and last year I 'found my Gift'.

I had brought some essential oils and essential oil blends I created to the Playa to
scent my tent for hypnotherapy experience sessions. Finding my visit to our local porta
potties less than inspirational, I scented every third porta potty with a blend and put a
sign up on the outside of the door indicating the blend and its all-botanical
ingredients. When I returned a few hours later to check on the scented porta potties, I
found line ups for them! Soon, the Aromathara Potties were the talk of Kidsville. One
person even said that it was the highlight of his Burn! So I started to think: What if
Aromathera Potties appeared all over Black Rock City? What if aromatherapy enthusiasts
shared their gifts at their local porta potties throughout the Burn?

So here's the deal with the Aromathera Potty Project:
1. Contact me so we can get on the same page and so that I can get an overview of the
spread of the Project.

2. Select/collect/create a handful of blends or singles (I suggest 30ml of each) to scent
your local porta potties with. Here are the "Anarres Emo Oils" I used: http://ww
w.anarreshealth.ca/catalog/3/essential_oils?page=3 I suggest every third or fourth porta
potty to make the job manageable for you and to ensure that scent averse folks have a
choice not to use an Aromathera Potty.

3. Create non moopy signs to post on the Aromatherapy Potties. Bring 2 per blend in case
one goes missing. Be sure that the signs state boldly 'Aromathera Potty Project', name
the blend in a fun but accurately evocative way ('Furry Forest' rather than 'Fun Fur' for
an evergreen blend) and list all of the ingredients with the common and latin botanical
names so that we don't endanger anyone with allergies to specific botanicals. NO
SYNTHETIC SCENTS OR PERFUMES, PLEASE AS THESE ARE ALLERGENIC AND NOT NATURAL AND NOT
AROMATHERAPEUTIC ETC.

4. Once on the playa, implement your Aromathera Potty Project at your local porta
potties! Visit every 4 hours or so, tidy your porta potty and flick drops of essential
oil goodness on the walls. It only takes a few minutes and you're done!

5. Marvel at the line ups at 'your' scented Aromathera Potties! Bask in praise, directed
and overheard! Rejoice in the gift you are bringing to the Playa Experience!

Let The RRRevolution Begin in Your Senses!

FORUMS FOR REGISTERING THEME CAMPS - SF, CA (+WORLDWIDE) - FEB 15, MAR 24

We are hosting an important offerings of forums – the first ones ever held for Burning
Man Theme Camps!

The first forum is scheduled for Wednesday, February 15th, 6-9 PM Pacific Time. That's
the date that the 2012 Placement questionnaire goes live. At least one subsequent forum –
covering the same topics – will be Saturday in March 24th, 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM, Pacific
Time, to accommodate east coast and international time zones participants. The Placement
questionnaire closes April 26th.

Our event is growing, and with that growth comes challenges for both the Burning Man
organization and you. Our departmental leadership group and the Placement team have
considered what topics would benefit the most from a dialog with you, with the goal of
better setting expectations, and making things easier and more successful on the playa.

Topics to be presented to assist your success as a theme camp producer will include:

o Tips for successful filing of the Placement questionnaire
o How to get through Gate with ease: early arrivals, carpools, deliveries, &
"outside services"
o Ensuring a safe space for your visitors
o Acculturating outside services for 'plug & play' camps
o Heavy construction equipment: self-sufficiency, sharing with other camps
o Meeting Health Department compliance
o How to successfully de-MOOP and leave no trace: @ BRC and in surrounding communities

We hope you can join us in person at BMHQ in San Francisco (limited seating), or via
webcast and phone. RSVP Call-in and web-in information to follow:

We are using last year's placement camps list to invite camps to these forums. Please
contact placement@burningman.com if you are a new or returning
camp that wasn't on the playa in 2011.

Thank you!

- 2012 Placement team

FROSTBURN REGIONAL EVENT - PITTSBURGH, PA - FEB 17-20

Frostburn (http://frostburnpgh.com/index.html) takes place 50 miles north of Pittsburgh,
PA over Presidents' day weekend: February 17-20th 2012. Online ticket sales are open
until Feb. 13.

When a group of Pittsburgh Burners thought to themselves: "What makes Burning Man
special?" the answer was resounding: harsh conditions, amazing art, good people. And
what harsh conditions were available? Winter, of course...cold, snowy, Pittsburgh winter.
And thus "Frostburn" was born.

Imagine the climatic opposite of Burning Man: a frozen forest where ice and snow join
fire and steam as mediums... where sharing warmth is not just a figure of speech, but a
necessity. Where radical self-reliance and communal effort are critical for human
survival...

Thanks. Anyone know what I should do about not getting updates? I'm missing 8 issues. I tried putting a slice of bacon in my cd tray for good measure but all the good that did was turn my laptop into a mutant car.

I think that they archive the old ones, so you can at least see the other seven you missed.
You could delist yourself then sign up again. Or let your isp know that this isn't spam to you. I don't know how that works, I'm just parroting here...

Your ISP may be spamfiltering your email serverside (mine was, Cox cable). I had to log into my ISPs webmail and dig around to find the setting to get them to stop it, now they just flag everything they think is spam with --SPAM-- and let it come through. And indeed the most recent issue of JRS was flagged as spam.

I won't speak for JKISHA but as you can see above the ticket situation seems bleak for those that don't have them yet. Seems that everyone applied for more than they actually needed thus spiking demand. Everyone is freaking out & the fighting on ePlaya is ugly. Let’s hope that the odds work for most & they get the tickets they need. I truly think we need to wait until the notifications go out before we declare this a total disaster. We will know soon enough.

Good Luck everyone

I think "we truly need to wait" until some point after the STEP (is that the right acronym?) system has had a chance to redestribute the tickets before we declare it a success, a total success, a total disaster or a pancake on the head of a bunny.

I assumed that's what he was talking about but I wasn't sure and wanted him to elaborate. I've been reading everyone's opinion on the new system but since this will be my virgin year, I feel as though I have no right to complain. I really don't care about what's going on behind the scene other than my respect for all the hard work it must be to put such a system together. I've been wanting to go for about ten years I guess, but never really tried hard enough. The situation was the same every year... I'd meet a friend that would initiate a conversation about a comparison between the amount of possible neuron pathways in the human brain vs the amount of subatomic particles in the universe. I knew right away that he just got back from Burning Man. I never kept up with the dates and it was always too late. But this year my wife and I finally put our heads (and wallets) together and we're going for sure.

I was reading about STEP and it seems like it will be a relief for us if we don't get chosen in the lottery. It's nice to know there will be a protected option to purchase tickets resale that aren't sky-high in price... like you've all seen on Craigslist and Ebay in the past. That seems like a great idea to me! Just like the rest of the world's population is growing (too much IMHO), things need to change to keep it all somewhat under control (and they're failing miserably). As more people are wanting to buy tickets each year , it seems the less perfect a ticketing system would be.

Trilo, or anyone, know if STEP is being mentioned in the notification e-mails as the "suggested/preferred" way of selling unneeded tickets? I would like to think that most people would like to do the right thing if they know about it. But the temptation to put extra tickets on SleezBay is probably strong for some folks. I can understand the temptation but I hope it is not the case. Lets just hope for miserable weather this year so the demand is lower next year :x

Looks to me that the official JRS site only has up to 2011 archived. I did find this site though.

It's not a function of how many times you've been to the burn. It's a function of the pointing finger of blame, the outsized senses of entitlement, the inability to wait and see, and, in some cases, the decision made even before getting on here that these untested things are fatal flaws.

I believe that announce digest you mention isn't JRS at all, but one of the other mailing lists (there's a bunch, maybe a theme camp or departmental team list or something). Go here to sign up for the JRS list, which should only ever contain the actual Jack Rabbit Speaks newsletter (no chatter).
