Have a bit of a backlog of news, so I will post a bunch:
I finished Culture Jam last week, finally. A bit rambling, and some of the options are a bit out of my reach, but still a great read.
I bought a cheapy tent at costco last weekend. It seems to be based off the model of a more expensive tent. The main reason I bought it is that it has great ventilation and a sky light, thanks to a clear plastic part of the fly. We will see what happens to it in the heat of burning man. Yes, I already have my burning man ticket and plan to go again. This time I will be a bit more prepared and hope to contribute more.
