    Many. After a few hours, it starts to lose any meaning.

    Burning Man may be bad for SF business, but it's great for NV business. Burning Man heavily supports the entire local area - tiny little towns that would probably have gone bankrupt years ago if it wasn't for tens of thousands of people storing RVs, renting bikes, and buying water and ice. Burning Man also results in about $10m to the Reno airport, and around $5m to local government and law enforcement. There is a huge amount of money swirling around the event and a lot of people benefit from it.

    Looks like a fantastic event, TSG -- when my girl & I head out there some year, I'll send you a note!

    Go now.

    And I say that because it's clearly apparent the original flavor of Burning Man is slowly being lost. People were outraged when White Ocean announced Paul Oakenfold was going to be there back in July - a clear violation of the spirit of the event. Shit got real when a rumor circulated (and was later validated) that Miley Cyrus was going to be there. Corporate entertainment using Burning Man as a publicity platform blows, but it's a sign of changing times. Sure seems to me in five years it's not going to be anything like it was five years ago.

    Kind of like paving Pike's Peak. Not really

    Glad I got there before it was completely paved though.

    Wow.

    Sounds like a life affirming event.

    Now I want to go.

    Knowing me though, after a day or two, i'd be bored and want to find a nice quiet hole to read in.

    That would be really cool, honestly. BUT it's rather difficult to obtain tickets these days. (and expensive)

    Not sure how tickets are difficult to get, but they are expensive. $380/ea this year.
