That’s just the way it works you…

“That’s just the way it works: you show up and if you run out of something you know the people at the next camp will let you use theirs. Or there will be a theme camp giving it away. Or a naked hula hooper will want you to have it. For over a decade now Burning Man has been a culture of abundance. The Man never runs out.

What we’re seeing now may be 21st century Burning Man’s first serious encounter with a culture of scarcity.”
