That was great, Ano.

Seemed like a different vibe @ BRC, less like a special place. After the tickets sold out unexpectedly in 2011, BMOrg had a decision to make -- give preference to prior purchasers, and let the culture evolve slowly, or embrace the sell-out hassles to discourage & filter out people who've been there before, ramping up the percent of newbies. No way for me to know how deliberate, or knowledgeable, their decision was.
I'm sure the regulars tend to present more of a hassle -- feeling that this is an event that all of us have some part of instead of just a corporate art show & profitable event.
Then there was BMOrg's announcement last year during Burning Man that, after seeing how things worked out, they thought the ticket process had been peachy.
And, also announcing that they're supportive of those luxury packages to come comfortably, stare, & leave, which is just ticket scalping at a higher level (despite BMOrg claiming to be anti-scalping).
This year, once again, I failed to get a ticket in the primary auction. Very likely I can manage to buy one later, but (unlike last year) I'm not feeling that it's imperative that I go. Which, for BMOrg, is not important since they already, literally, have the money in the bank.

Roark and I were traveling - we do that - and there wasn't an opportunity.
Oddly enough, I logged into eplaya before trying to purchase, and found a thread betting on when the tix would sell out - and it had already sold out.
Thazz allrat. I understand the BLM rules.
Just sorry about it.
