NEW! Burning Man Digital Innovator's Guide

Postby trilobyte » Fri May 30, 2014 5:29 pm

I've got an awesome newsflash from the Burning Man Tech Team...

Your Burner App Data is Waiting in the Innovation Lobby
Three … Two … 1 … 0 … 1NN0VATE!

You are a community of innovators and Black Rock City is a mecca for those who D.I.Y. or die. We're excited to give you these tools and building blocks to play with in the digital space. Announcing innovate.burningman.com!

We're gifting you data so that you can gift it back to the community by building amazing apps and other innovative online interactive 'art'. This portal contains datasets, APIs and very important guidelines for your technical tinkering.

We can't wait to see what you create. Nothing’s stopping you from doing a Kevin Flynn, but if taking out the MCP isn’t your cup of mashup, then consider making some other useful social tool for the community … maybe a klown finder app, complete with pinball sounds ... Or maybe you’re going to boldly go where no burner has gone before and build an app that finally explains what TTiTD is by bedazzling virgin eyes with burnified pixels.

Just remember, with great data, comes great responsibility, and be sure to submit your creations back to us because we’d love to feature your work in our application showcase.

XOX,

The Burning Man Tech Team

Burning Man will also be hosting a special 'Hacking Man' event at BMHQ on Saturday June 14th from noon to 5PM (PDT)

While the burners are still hot from the launch of the new Innovation Portal, our Tech Team is hosting 'Hacking Man' at BMHQ. Join us onsite and online to give tours of the new digital playground. Our geeks will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss additional features and data, and most importantly to help YOU envision and create awesome digital tools and toys for BRC and beyond!

Please RSVP HERE by Noon (PDT) on June 12 to indicate if you will be joining us... in person or remotely. We will send out directions and connection information a few days before 'Hacking Man.'

(Fine Print: No men will be harmed, injured or actually hacked during this geek-out.)
