ASK THE MAN - (ASK THE MOUSE?)
The Playa-Infomanic Mouse will be scurrying about Burning Man
Headquarters during the Open House with the Man's head in her cute
little paws, collecting YOUR questions for the MAN. Sounds surreal? Of
course it does - it's Burning Man!
A panel of Burning Man staffers will convene to answer all questions
at the end of the day.

LAWYERS FOR BURNERS
Just what are your rights on government land? David Levin talks about
LFB'S efforts challenging 2007 BLM citations in the courts.

POTLUCK BARBEQUE (BRING YOUR OWN CUP) - You betcha! Whatcha bringin'
for the grill? Who's got the potato salad?

DEALING WITH THE DARK SIDE
It's a dark new moon on the 2008 playa! "Louie Lights, Dr Glowire, &
Dale Scott" present a workshop on lighting on the playa for: Camping,
Personal Adornment & Safety, Illumination of Art

DESERT DREAM HOUSE TO DISASTER SHELTERS
Sick of your dusty tent? Shade structure blow away in 07? RV too
pricy? With open source alternatives like www.hexayurt.com and www.playatech.com
it is easy to create and deploy your own American Dream in Black
Rock City or any disaster area: a radically comfortable home of your
own! Come see what the Netherlands Red Cross, and the US Department of
Defense have in common!

FEE-FREE (FOE FUM) BURNING MAN TICKETS

Angel - DA (Playa Restoration) on:

MAKING POWER FROM THE SUN!
Corey Sauer of Black Rock Solar a non-profit project of the Burning
Man community, focused on addressing climate change and speeding the
adoption curve of renewable energy. Installing renewable energy at
low or no cost, Black Rock Solar puts much needed funds in the hands
of communities typically not served by the renewable energy industry,
who then get to decide how to best meet their own needs.

NAKED - POLKA CONFLICT RESOLUTION
Just how do Black Rock Rangers resolve sound disputes?: Witness:
"Silent Naked Yoga Camp vs. Loud Polka Camp"!

PUT SOME PRIDE IN YOU PLAYA RIDE
Will your bike be ready for the playa? Learn to be pedal-ly self-
reliant!
Playa-Infomaniac Bobalou, Ranger TomCat of "Borrachos Y Bicicletas"

the playa.
