OK, remember that part where we said we weren't going to do a Resources Edition this year? Yeah, well, turns out, we're not, but we're still sharing the info another way. So here it is.
Let us take a moment for some caveats. Burning Man is NOT anti-commerce ... some might say it's commerce that makes the world go 'round, but at the very least, you can't even come to the event without engaging in commerce (you do, after all, buy a ticket to attend). What we're against is commodification, which is a very different thing altogether. Says so right there in our Ten Principles:
Additionally, we believe in supporting our community with info they need, and supporting the entrepreneurs in it who wish to serve the community. Hence, we bring you the Resources Edition as a single weblink, a listing of Burner-owned or of-interest-to-Burners businesses that may help you in your preparation for Burning Man.
And while we wish to support these folks, we also encourage you to reduce, reuse, and recycle, and to rethink what you NEED to buy for Burning Man versus what you can do without, or do in another way. That said, for what you NEED to buy, we present this offering of businesses to consider. We are not endorsing any of them or guaranteeing the quality of any of these services. Buyer beware, caveat emptor, and all of that.
And with that, click here to visit our Resources Edition web page:
p.s. those playing the Burning Man drinking game are probably hammered about now.
