I went to Wasteland Weekend for 7 hours this year. It’s only an hour and a half drive from my house, and I wasn’t prepared to camp, I just wanted to take more pictures inside the Thunderdome. So I did.
This was mostly something I did on Facebook, and will likely not post as a separate blog entry. But since there are 3 posts I wanted to put them in one place.
This is all regarding #metoo, and sexual harassment and assault. Continue reading
I attended a short Burning Man this year – the event runs from Sunday until the following Monday (Labor Day), but I arrived around 1am Tuesday morning and left Thursday afternoon. I was camped with Red Nose District, right next to Death Guild Thunderdome, and took an awful lots of shots of the fights in the domes. Let’s just say that’s tricky with a manual lens.
My original 4300 photos became nearly 400 selected and edited. I made a lot of new friends this year (or got to know some people I only knew casually previously, better).
The entire album can be found on my Facebook page here. Scenes include Center Camp, Honey Puddle bar and piano scenes, Red Nose District, Thunderdome, the car crash outside the event, and my friends Wendy and David who hosted me on the way in and out of Burning Man when I stopped in Reno.

So, this website debuted recently that allows anonymous feedback (because what could possibly go wrong?).
I decided last week to try it out, and then I ended up getting interesting comments so I started sharing them, making things kind of like an AMA.

To see the feedback I’ve gotten and my replies, check out this Facebook album (click on a picture to see my commentary).
I was part of a panel at PorcFest which moderator Elizabeth Nolan Brown wrote about in Reason Magazine.
Video/quotes and write up can be found at Reason.com.
I was interviewed for Reason’s Humans of Freedom Fest project.
“People use information however they like. It’s confirmation bias.”

Wherein I say nice things about Austin Petersen.
“Austin Petersen, in preparation for his Senate run, said he made a lot of phone calls and talked to a lot of people before making his decision to run as a Republican. I happened to be one of those people – he came over for dinner in Los Angeles this spring and asked me for my thoughts about his run, and which party. I told him to run as a Republican.
There’s probably a dozen reasons why.”
