About Me
From the Burning Man Website:
“Danger Ranger is the legendary protector of our desert society. Some say he's the seventh son born of the scion of a seventh son. Others claim he possesses near borderline supernatural powers, including the ability to bi-locate and appear at two places simultaneously. This seems plausible, given his penchant for pervading the playa. In 1992 he founded the Black Rock Rangers, an institution patterned on the Texas Rangers and their historic role as guardians of a dispersed frontier society.
Beyond the Black Rock Desert, Danger is known to his friends and co-workers as Michael Michael. He joined the Project in 1990 and he oversees the security and survival of the Burning Man community. He also created the first Burning Man mailing list/data base, produced the first issue of the Black Rock Gazette, established the Burning Man Archive, and drove the first art car to the Black Rock Desert. In 2001 he visited regional communities during his Tour of America as an ambassador for Burning Man. In addition, Michael functions as the guiding light of San Francisco's famous Cacophony Society—"a randomly gathered network of free spirits united in pursuit of experience beyond the mainstream." He has a strong interest in the mysteries of time, space and consciousness along with an engineering systems background in computers and robotics. His Silicon Valley career began with Fairchild Semiconductor just a few years before it gave birth to Intel. After 1984, he served as a robotics consultant to Apple Computer and later engineered the rise (and fall) of Jasmine Computer Systems. Always riding the edge, he contributed to the Mondo 2000 house in Berkeley and wired Wired Magazine's first office in San Francisco. His wide range of experiences includes having been a combat veteran in Vietnam and a federal fugitive in the United States. Other past activities include involvement with the machine performance group Survival Research Laboratories.
Throughout the year, M2 lends his guidance and wisdom to navigate Burning Man into the future. His official title is Director of Genetic Programming and he performs his best work at 3 AM.”
