Caveat is the Volunteer Coordinator for Media Mecca at Burning Man annoys bad people on behalf of organized crime.  His opinions are in no way statements of the Burning Man organization. Contact him at Caveat (at)

About the author: Caveat Magister

Caveat grew up wanting to be a Russian novelist, but the closest he ever came was getting personally insulted by the first democratically elected president of Poland. He is not an official representative of Burning Man, or even an employee, and does not speak for the organization. He does, however, periodically show up at the Burning Man Philosophical Center with a sign that says "Philosophy in Progress." He tweets under the clever pseudonym of @BenjaminWachs. His email is Caveat at burningman dot org.

  • So when I want to introduce my new friends to my old friends I go to the Playa Info directory to find my old friends and other people with the same names as my friends. Then I meet someone wonderful in the playa info directory line and wander off with them to a knitting circle and end up teaching a perfect perfect stranger how to knit. It is just like that. Eventually I remember why i went to playa info, circle back, and hope any of my friends who have my survival gear have put their contact info in the directory so i can find them and my gear.
