WikiLeaks posts the software governments use to spy on dissidents

by Jon Fingas

BREAKING

Cooper Griggs

bummer


Hard to believe, but it’s true. They have closed the gate due to rain (and hail).

RT @bmantraffic: Rain on Playa. Gate Road currently shut down at the 8 mile entrance. Stop before you get to Gerlach if you can.—
Burning Man (@burningman) August 25, 2014

Now Burners are being asked to stay in Reno, and not go past Gerlach.

If you’re in Reno, please stay there until we let you know the Gate has reopened.—
Burning Man (@burningman) August 25, 2014

RT @burningman: Due to rain, the BRC Gate will be closed for upward of the next 2-3 hours. Plan accordingly. Updates as they’re available.—
Burning Man Traffic (@bmantraffic) August 25, 2014

Gate Road unlikely to open anytime in the next 4 hours. Stay in Reno please.—
Burning Man Traffic (@bmantraffic) August 25, 2014

Prior to the close, the wait was 2-3 hours from Wadsworth to 8 mile then 5-6 hours to get through the gate.

Rain on Playa. Try not to drive on wet playa. 2 hours Wadsworth to 8 Mile! Woo Hoo! Estimate 5-6 hours on Gate Road.—

doodler

i have this thing where i draw these lines sort of obsessively when i’m bored at a meeting. i posted a sample of this last year, and i have come to like the odd output of this mundane distraction.

last night i drew the doodles above while playing ken burns ‘jazz’ documentary in the background (my umpteenth viewing, so i can get away with just listening… and what a lovely listen).

so, i decided to turn my doodles into art for the guest bathroom. i liked the idea of putting my completely random squiggles behind matting and glass. it’s interesting to me how framing them somehow legitimized them. and they’ll be a nice visual puzzle for folks while they pee.
