Some open questions:
* Has burning man reached a growth point where its exhausting the people who might want to come? I.e. out of everyone in the world, has everyone who might want to come mostly already come?
* Does the harshness of the playa act more as an effective self-selector or hazing?
* Why did I drink so much coffee today?

It is a tremendous boon to go to the desert and face only real problems. Too many times we forget that problems involving symbols are self-created and have no more power than we give them. If I fall asleep in a dust storm (as I did) and wake up (as I did) then I win.
It was really wonderful to work at Arctica this year. People were THRILLED to trade their worthless pieces of paper for ice, real ice, with the power to keep food fresh or chill cocktails. All that happy energy made it an absolutely awesome experience.
