**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**\<>/**


Greetings and welcome to the disorienting netherworld that is the holiday timewarp!

We've got a great JRS for you today, including a few opportunities to work for/with the Man! Yep, we need some good communicators and graphic designers. Perhaps that's you? Hmmm? Hmmm? Check 'em out below and hop to it.

Beyond that, we've got your usual smattering of news, writings, video, pretty pictures and opportunities to participate (Sprechen Sie Deutsch?).

Aaaaand ... preliminary ticket information for Burning Man 2014! Yesss!

Lastly, anticipating your burning question (har!), we don't have any announcements about the art theme for Burning Man 2014 yet. But hang tight! We'll have the goods for you in a soooon-to-come JRS.

We here at BMHQ would like to extend our wishes for a healthy and happy holiday season to you and yours.

The Man burns in 268 days!

PRELIMINARY 2014 TICKETING INFO

We know you've been awaiting information about tickets for Burning Man 2014, but the plan hasn't been finalized. Why the delay? We haven't finalized agreements with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for the 2014 permit.

So while we don't have all of the details, here's some info to help you plan:
1) There will be a Pre-Sale, but it will not happen until mid-January. As in the past, this sale will only offer the highest priced tickets.
2) The full ticketing plan for 2014 will be announced in early January on tickets.burningman.com
3) While details are still pending, our intention is to repeat the basic process and structure from 2013: all of our ticket sales will require pre-registration through the Burner Profile system, there will be a Pre-Sale, a Directed Group Sale, an Individual Sale, a late-season OMG Sale, and we will again offer the Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP) and our Low Income Ticket Program. We are also striving to keep ticket prices as in line with 2013 as possible. While all of this is still subject to final changes, know that this is our aim.

In December of 2012 the Pre-Sale designated a percentage of the income to the nonprofit Burning Man Project. By not having this sale in December of 2013 we're missing the opportunity to make this useful year-end donation to the Project. The leadership of the LLC are in the final stages of negotiating and completing the transaction that will make Black Rock City, LLC a subsidiary of the Project. Now more than ever the Project needs your support. Please consider making a donation to the Project as you look at your year-end contributions. You can donate online here:

BURNING MAN SEEKING INTERNS FOR WINTER/SPRING 2013-2014

Two exciting internships offer opportunities to engage with Burning Man’s Communications Department and Regional Network during winter/spring 2013-2014. Internships require a high level of organization, acute attention to detail and deadlines, top-notch written and verbal communication skills and a keen ability to think quickly and function well in a high-pressure, creative environment that is often chaotic but always a lot of fun.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to be eligible interns MUST be receiving official school credit. Prior to beginning an internship with Burning Man, candidates must provide written proof that credit will be received from the relevant educational institution.

For full details on the duties and qualifications, and the form to apply, visit:

CREATE INSPIRING GRAPHIC DESIGN FOR BURNING MAN!

Have you always wanted to have a design considered for an official Burning Man project, but didn't know how? Have you been dying to share your deep love of typography and clean design with the larger Burning Man community? Well, this is your opportunity to throw your hat in the ring. If you're an experienced graphic designer brimming with innovative, visually rivetting ideas, get in touch with us! We're looking for folks with experience in the following areas: web design and UI/UX, identity development, and strategic visual communications, print design and illustration, to name a few. We have several projects throughout the year for which we have calls for submissions, and we'd love to include you for consideration.

If you are interested in being a part of the Burning Man designer pool, please complete this online form: http://bit.ly/BManDesign

Also, if you know talented graphic designers who you think would be interested but may not see this post, please encourage them to fill out the form!

DID YOU LOSE YOUR CAMERA ON PLAYA? OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO DID? FIND IT HERE

Check out these photos from cameras that were turned into Playa Info, and see if you recognize your (or your friends') shots:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/burning_man...ound/sets/

If you discover your images in the lost and found set:

To get your camera back, please send an email to us at lostandfound@burningman.com, and put the camera/Flickr Set number in the subject line. A set number looks like this: 13-###P

Please provide us with a description of your camera: make, model, color, and if appropriate, describe its case or a bag.

Also, describe any unique photos that aren't published on Flickr, and if possible, send us a photo of yourself or someone who would appear in your photos.

Lastly, include your mailing address. If we have your camera we will send it to you; we just ask that after you receive your package, you reimburse us the cost of postage.

... and remember to put your contact info on your camera next year!

Thanks, and good luck!

THE BURNING MAN CALENDAR MAKES A GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT

Screw Black Friday, Saturday localwhatever, Cyber Monday and all that ... put your money where your heart is. Pick up a Burning Man 2013/14 wall calendar for your gifting pleasure this holiday season (order before December 9 to be sure it gets to you in time). It includes tons of gorgeous Burning Man photography.

http://bit.ly/16bLSKa

But wait ... isn't that ... COMMERCIAL? *gasp*

Not really. We make this calendar every year so YOU can have a chunk of Burning Man memories tacked to your wall throughout the year -- it's a cultural conveyance. Do we make money on it? Once all the costs are calculated, barely. So don't feel like you have to take a shower after clicking "buy". It's all good.

BLACK ROCK CITY ARCHITECTURE PORN

Our good friend Philippe Glade writes:

"It's this time of the year when vivid memories start to fade away leaving us with the echo of poignant moments experienced in a bygone place. In other words, would like to (re)visit one more time Black Rock City 2013? The aptly named blog "This is Black Rock City" will bring you back to places where you could/should/have had an epiphany and will make appear places that you had no idea were there. Don't forget your electrolytes, it's as long as the exodus. Welcome back home.

FIREOPOLIS - A BURNING MAN PERFORMANCE REBORN AS A WEB SERIES

Marc writes:

"Fireopolis is where film, music and fire collide to tell a tale of struggle and redemption. Fireopolis is a one of a kind web series that was born on the stage at Burning Man in 2010 and nurtured by a group of committed artists who wanted to bring a piece of the playa home and share it with the world. It combines rich photography with dramatic performances from Solar Flare to bring you a tale full of magic and mystery. Join us on this adventure as we travel through the mythical world of Fireopolis.

Please write me an e-mail (how much you think you could do and in which direction) so I can organize - we´ll see if there are enough burners outside to translate almost two hours...;-)

This documentation is my burning man donation for all of you - so please share if you like it!

CROWDFUNDING: TRENDS IN THE SHARING ECONOMY - SAN FRANCISCO, CA - DECEMBER 12

Please join us for this special discussion on December 12 at Burning Man Headquarters!

Crowdfunding: Trends in the Sharing Economy

The sharing economy is taking off – whether it’s peer-to-peer rentals, skill sharing, crowdfunding, ridesharing or unused parking spots. Spawned by a confluence of the economic crisis, environmental concerns, and the social web coming of age, the sharing economy is quickly becoming the hottest trend in economic paradigms.

We in the Burning Man community are particularly interested in the dynamics and the future of the sharing economy, since it reflects our principles of gifting, communal effort, civic responsibility and decommodification.

Please join us for a panel discussion focused specifically on the future of crowdfunding, one of the fastest-developing areas in the sharing economy. We will explore the role it plays in creative community development, and how it’s being applied to entrepreneurial endeavors in the form of spaces (local real estate) and support for small businesses (micro loans).

When: December 12, 7-9pm
Where: Burning Man HQ
Address: 660 Alabama Street, San Francisco

Panelists:
Daniel Miller, Fundrise
Harry Pottash, Kiva
Kate Drane, Indiegogo

Moderator:
Will Chase, Burning Man Project

Please RSVP to attend: http://bit.ly/1ckqUsT

This program is part of an ongoing series of events produced as part of the non-profit Burning Man Project’s Educational Program, supporting its cultural, philosophical and educational initiatives around the world.

VIENNA BURNING BALL: ROYAL CIRCUS - VIENNA, AUSTRIA - JANUARY 11

Gogo writes:

"The Vienna Burners are organizing their first event!

When: Saturday, 11th January 2014
Where: Garage X, Petersplatz 1, 1010 Vienna, Austria, Europe
What: A participatory event with art installations, performances, music and dance. Inspired by the Ten Principles of Burning Man, especially radical self-expression, participation, communal effort, immediacy and gifting.

Participate! At this event you are not only a guest, you are an active contributor. How does this work?

You are welcome to perform at our Burner Cabaret: sing, dance, do a headstand, scream with joy... you can be an artist for one night! We already collected ideas for: Virgin Sacrifice, One Wo/Man Theatre, Biofeedback Relaxation, Body Art, Shibari (Japanese Bondage), Poi and Juggling-Workshop, Photo Booth and more! Contact us, and we'll be happy to help you to realize YOUR ideas!

RE: Buring Man info thread
OK, when I wake up tomorrow I'm buying the ticket + a car pass + renting either a Wicked van (from LA - about $1500) or an RV from Reno ($3500-$5000). An RV can have 4-6 people, the Wicked car, 2 or 5 ($1800). If I rent it in LA the drive is 11 hours.

I'm tempted towards the RV, screw it. Also - I'm tempted to buy a Quadcopter for my GoPro

http://www.amazon.com/DJI-Phantom-Aerial...quadcopter

And make sick videos, It will be useful with all my travels. I wish I had it in the North Pole.

RE: Buring Man info thread
Burning man is INSANE. I went on a small pink girlbike through the desert with an ice chest on wheels in my hand, filled with only ice and a bottle of Jack Daniels .. that and my backpack. Explaining burning man is like explaining sex to a virgin. I have been to a lot of rave parties, parties in forests, squats, etc, but this beats all. THIS HAS TO BE IN YOUR BUCKET LIST. I met Alexander Shulgin (discoverer of mdma and hundreds of other drugs) and his wife Anne while I was tripping on ketamine.

Lots of people dress up, are naked or wear few clothes, lots of hippies and alternative folks obviously. There are quite some cute hippy chicks if that's your thing. I hear there's lots of sex on psytrance festivals and that there are hot girls there, ... but boy, do I hate the music and subculture.

I know at least 3 other people who go, a guy I met in Africa and told me I should come, and then 2 FB friends who know I go because I posted on my wall that I'm going and invited anyone to join. You can also just join a themed camp and then you'd have "built in" buddied.
