Time Event
With all the limitations being put on photography at the event this year, I am actually considering not taking my camera, even though photography of the event is my own personal art. I don't try to make any money off of any of my photography, let alone Burning Man, but use it more just to document my experiences.
In the past, I have always tried to ask before taking a shot, except in the cases where many people are dancing/juggling/playing and I want to try to get them all interacting. I especially love to shoot fire-dancers, as many feel I can capture not only the art of the dance, but the dancer as well.
I'm thinking that I might go ahead and take my camera if there is anyone interested in having me follow you around for a couple of hours in order to document your own experiences. For example, if you are going to get "married," or while building your dome, or even just making a meal for a party or event at your theme camp.
Not only would this be my art, but it would also be my gift, as I can upload all the pictures to the web for you to download into your own directories to do with as you please.
If no one is interested, I will likely keep the camera at home. But even if just one of you is, I'll take it.
I know there are a lot of fire-dancers out there who would like more pictures of themselves spinning. Or if you just want pictures of you and your campmates lounging around your camp. I'd hate it if I didn't get to bring the camera.

If you don't know Yinling of Joytoy (Yinling for short), you should. You are missing a world of indescribable ectasy.

More Playa Ideas
Just a few more things for you to think about when you head out.

* If you are going to take glow sticks, it would be better to take the battery operated ones rather than the chemical ones. Why? Because the chemical ones only last a few hours, and you have to throw them away. That means more garbage for you to haul out. It also means more packaging you have to haul in.

* Be sure to take a roll of toilet paper. Even though the porta-potties come stocked, they do run out. The time to notice that there is no toilet paper shouldn't be after you've already sat down and started.

* Speaking of porta-potties; remember those things get dark inside, so it's a good idea to have a flashlight to see where you are aiming (if you are a guy) or what you are about to sit on. If you are a guy and find it too hard to hold yourself and a flashlight at the same time, glowsticks, especially battery operated ones, are recommended. Either that, or sit down. Just make sure you know where you're sitting.

* Baby wipes! Good for cleaning just about everything, including porta-potty seats!

-- A friendly reminder, nothing goes in the porta-potty except your potty. --

Okay, that's all I have for now, right at the top of my head.
is or is snot?
so, is there a live journal camp at burning man this year? i'm pretty sure i saw that there wasn't but i just wanted to make sure. -if there's not, who wants to adopt me! i'll be looking for a camp then.
