Look at that, a more balanced article in the SF Bay Guardian. "Burning Man takes anti-scalper and traffic control measures as tickets arrive" Check it out.

Steven Jones didn't plug his Burning Man book in the article even once? Inconceivable. Must have been ghostwritten.

UPDATE: Ah, he linked to his book in the article. Whew! That was close.

It was a slow page-load for me, delle - you might need to refresh/reload.

Good catch! I wondered how he got through an entire article without mentioning it.

Whoa, whoa, hold on a second.


"As an additional measure, BRC will be moving up the final official event of the week – the burning of the Temple on the last Sunday night (Sept. 2) – from 9 pm to dusk to facilitate more people hitting the road that night."

Eh..er... Um, a sunset during the temple burn instead of a solid beacon of fire lighting up the dark? Not sure if better or worse or neutral. Either way, I can see the reasoning for it... Kind of sad, but I can see why.

Yeah, the temple ceremonies will begin as the sun goes over the mountains (or possibly just after… playa time and all).
