Internal or External Vetting?

Burning Man hosts many information exchange platforms. Why not seek resolution in one or more of those virtual meeting spaces instead of building a website specifically to vet issues?

  • Eplaya
  • Facebook Groups
  • Hive
  • Spark
  • Burning Man website
  • Myriad Slack Forums and Zoom Events

The simple answer: they are all gated, micromanaged and cultivated.

There have been many attempts to address issues many times in all these spaces to no avail. Burning Man is extremely sensitive about controlling messages and deflecting criticism internally.
