Intellectual Pursuits at Burning Man 2012

August 15th, 2012  |  Filed under Culture (Art & Music), Participate!

Burning Man on the Brain, button by Editrix Abby

While Burning Man has gained a well-earned reputation for being one of the greatest parties in the world, it’s a somewhat lesser known fact that it’s also a crucible for creativity, innovation and intellectual discourse. We’ve done a round-up of all the workshops, talks, conferences (yes, conferences) and other intellectual pursuits happening in Black Rock City this year — turns out there’s a lot of ‘em! Read on, then get out there and get your cerebellum stimulated! You’ll also find a list of academic events on the back of the What Where When guide, which you’ll get at the Greeters Station.

(Please note that as with any “scheduled” event in Black Rock City, your mileage may vary. Camps move, times shift, weather blows things away, and people aren’t 100% reliable … so take this schedule with a grain of salt, and check in with the organizers directly if you want to make sure things are happening when and where you expect them to.)

    Let’s not kid ourselves, you’re talking about ‘pseudo intellectual discourse’. Hispters and yupsters on spirit quests are not intellectuals. TED, Burning Man is not.

  6. Playa Hanjin Says:

    Burning Man is not TED; it’s way better than TED.

    TED might have started out as lofty intellectualism, but it’s devolved into a me-too conference: fairly conventional ideas, with a little sophomoric sentimentalism thrown in for good measure. It’s brought intellectualism a little closer to the masses, and that’s good, but it’s nowhere near cutting-edge.

    The personal journeys many people go through at the Burn are more ‘cutting-edge’ in a philosophical, metaphysical, intellectual and spiritual sense than anything I’ve ever seen at TED.

    Just sayin’.

    Burners Without Borders camp, at 3:45 and Esplanade, will be having Salons on Tuesday and Thursday from 2-4pm, where we invite people to come learn about our organization, and share their own experience/endeavors in community building, activism, and humanitarian aid.

    Please stop by!

  9. The Sacred Space Traveler Says:

    TED, and Burning Man… hmmmm. Maybe this is not a place to make one better than the other, as this again fosters a sense of competition… How about having a complimentary attitude of inclusion, where the differing views and perspectives, and ways of expression can be honored for what they are. TED talks and Burning Man talks and feels are both a collective Consciousness series. Let’s honor each program as parts of a whole gestalt of greater understanding and awareness that spans our vision, intellect, feelings and artistic expression. Whats cool about BM is that you could be wandering down a street, or on a far playa journey and come across a TED Talker hanging out demonstrating what they talked about for the cameras…

    What a silly thing to say Pannat. I suppose it’s unclear to you that some of the same people attend both, speak at both…move in the same IRL circles….These people have been talking to each other for 30 years….since before the web had pictures.

    Also I assume you know how intertwined the history of acid and the history of tech in the Bay Area are intertwined?

    Shame if you don’t know the roots of the culture you deride so easily…

    To me it’s not a “somewhat lesser known fact that…” One of the things I love about BM is the intellectual stimulation it provides me (on top of spiritual, metaphysical, etc. but that’s besides the point) Some of the most enlightening conversations and workshops I’ve attended has been at BM. Can’t wait to attend AND participate in as many of these talks/workshops as I can this year!

    Btw, echoing others, where does the YURT tour start?! We’ll be yurt-ing, too, so come check us out! Actually, we don’t know where we’ll be yet :)

    Well, I spent a few days with these PlayaTel folks and a number of hours on the Baba Deck. The best fun and conversations on tech topics I’ve had in YEARS. The playa is many things, my friends. Add to that list – technology test site.

    I absolutely needed to contact the default world on Friday. My dog was in boarding and wasn’t eating. I got a text message via the sketchy cell coverage, but outgoing was failing. The playaTel folks hooked me up with wireless access to Default so I could use my android Vonage app to call and get a status. If it weren’t for that, exodus for me would have been Saturday afternoon. Instead, I got good news that she did start eating and I could stay ’till Monday morn. (Woohoo!) And then I handed my phone to someone else that needed to call to status a sick family member. After, we were both in a really good place to continue our burn. And then I went to the Baba Deck. You would have though I had magnets in my pants. I couldn’t leave. The vibes were better there than anywhere else, for me. I found my tribe.

    The playa is more than art and hedonistic pursuit. It is a community. With community needs. And sometimes the community needs technology to solve problems. I, for one would like to see better grey-water treatment capability. We could have been better stewards of the playa had there have been a “Grey-water Camp” and perhaps some sort of collection method. We would have been able to ameliorate some of the dust issues had we a supply of treated water to disperse on the roads. I’m pretty sure a lot of grey water went directly on the ground, untreated. I’d call that a preventable crime.

    I digress.

    I would have a vision for where this goes. All those (poorly bound) schedule books could have been replaced with a Playa-Wiki on local webservers and eliminated un-necessay MOOP. I think the Playa NEEDS a local net. It is the mode of today and the future. Technology != Default. I think that to evolve the playa for the next generations and reduce our footprint we should embrace modern solutions rather than reintroduce the luddite mindset. We owe it to the children of the playa.

    PlayaTel is a proving ground for that community of the future. Less MOOP. More inter-connected. A robust framework of utility to call for volunteers in our times of need to accomplish critical community tasks in a timely fashion.

    OK. I’ll step off my soapbox. But I’d rather spend days on the Baba Beck than even ten minutes at Moscone Center. That experience there had more meaning to me than even the Temple burn. And I found my tribe.

    I can be reached on eplaya as Xdominant. Comments and even flames welcomed. But I doubt you could discourage my vision with even the best snark you can muster.

    So I finally stumbled across the Evapotron. The technology exists, but is not being disseminated. What I find most troubling was the lack of emphasis on caring for that nasty brew that lots of folks were tending. I suppose you could just see it as simply yet another way to die in the desert.

    If we are to mimick a sustainable civilization, even for a brief time this needs visibility. Modern civilization (when early death is no longer a major factor in survival of the community and you don’t need 12 births just to stay even on population count) only starts when you are aware of such things. Most folks have forgotten (or don’t care to know) just how important that plumbing system design is in their home and elsewhere.

    I think this is a teach-able moment. We have the technology, ready to be shared, duplicated and deployed.

    http://www.evapotrons.info/

    I’d read on eplaya that anything beyond a simple evap pool was probably not practical. And I just didn’t think any harder about it.

    My bad.
