Taking a chance that you aren't a troll...
I think at this point your only chance at a ticket is to start working your local network, check out the regionals section of burningman.com, start going to regional meetups, volunteer and make yourself indespensible. Watch the ticket threads here, if they have them this year, they might just funnel all tickets to step though.
Good luck! Even if it doesn't work out for this year, it's never too early to start planning and 2013 will be here before you know it.
When the only tool you got is a hammer, every problem looks like a hippie.
Mmmmmm I love the smell of Burning Man - Token
