A short nine days ago, I eagerly awaited the appointed time (10:00 AM PST) and promptly got into the virtual ticket line at tickets.burningman.com. I was impressed with the way the organization handled the virtual queue and kept the page auto-updated as my ‘place in line’ moved along. Eighty-five minutes later I was able to get to the virtual ticket counter and purchased my ticket without undue burden or heartache. I found this quote on ePlaya to be particularly humorous, to wit, “Without getting all worked up and glandular, itâ€™s just not the same.” This being my first time to go to Burning Man, I haven’t had the angst that so many have had in previous years stampeding the ticket site on the first day of sales.
In related events, I got a first glimpse of the 2010 ticket design today on arinfishkin.com. Quite the pretty piece of paper it is!
