It's been quite illuminating for me to see how the event has changed over the years, and doing this project has made me have little patience with people who say things like, "Burning Man is ruined - it's changed so much since I started going in 1998."
Yeah? Well that's exactly what some people who were there in the early days were saying by '98. It's impossible to spend time studying the history of the event without recognizing that change has been a constant with it. Hope you enjoy!
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!
