We’ve got some more videos and links to Burning Man 2012 Photo Collections for you.
ePlaya is discussing “top asshat of 2012″…I can think of a few.
There’s also a great collection of videos and “overheard on the Playa” stories at Elephant Journal.

…or, if you have a little more time, here’s an hour and 20 minutes of “Playa Cast” video from BMIR.
Some people have expressed surprise that Burning Man was being streamed live on the Internet - unwarranted surveillance, perhaps? Burner Sarah says:
From what I understand there were a few cameras, the one at center camp being the most powerful in turns of zoom and viewer control. As a viewer you could jump from camera to camera and give them commands on where to turn.
My email list is blowing up with a bunch of people freaking out about what’s online and what isn’t.
Live streaming has been going on since 2008, but for the first time this year, home viewers could control the cameras and zoom in. If you don’t know where the cameras are, you probably don’t know what you might have been doing on camera, who you might have been seen with, and who might have seen you. This seems significantly more intrusive than smart phones and GoPros.
