Can’t make it to Burning Man this year? No need to despair. Burning Life is your answer, without the travelling and expense. Now in its sixth year, Burning Life is the virtual version of Burning Man. According to the SL Blog, Burning Man is where Philip Rosedale (AKA Philip Linden) got a lot of his inspiration for Second Life.
The call is out for volunteers and for participants. Check Burning Life: A call for volunteers for details on volunteer positions and/or the Theme Camp page to submit a proposal for a camp space. Deadline is August 31.
