My favorite quote from 2000 is from Adrian Roberts, the editor of the defunct Piss Clear magazine at Burning Man. He said, "We used to play house. Now we're playing city." Pretty apt.
Check out the history page for a ton of photos and video from those years.
I'm Dr. Yes, a 10 year burner. I run this site, was on the '15 Temple team, lead a theme camp called Friendgasm, and make Burning Man videos. Just say yes, folks, and help keep Burning Man weird!
