There are some crazy floats at Burning Man.

Bitcoin Miner Float (something like a giant open air computer + many led lights) would draw some attention  Cheesy

Ahh Burning Man! Thanks for volunteering me Charlie Smiley

Such a trip will be absolutely fantastic under the following conditions:

1) First and foremost, the purpose has to be to go with bitcoiners as a social and networking and ideating activity. We'll be able to talk bitcoin all day long among ourselves and I'm sure some great work would come out of it. BUT - we will not (and should not) be able to "sell" or promote bitcoin at Burning Man in any visible way. If it comes up in conversation with outsiders, that's great, but we can't be there to evangelize. So to the extent that it's partly a business trip, the business would be primarily limited to internally within our group, not externally toward other burners. The event is explicitly "money free" and "promotion free"... and if we're promoting money then we FAIL doubly Smiley With that said, many burners would be interested in a counter-culture monetary system - so hopefully lots of organic conversations could happen.

2) There's actually an issue of ticketing this year... basically the event has gotten so large that there are not enough tickets. Because the operators don't understand how price mechanisms work, they thought it'd be better to distribute tickets on a lottery system than by raising prices to curb demand. Any free-marketer would be able to predict the outcome - shortages! I have no idea how to get tickets this year, and it might be impossible to do in any coordinated way for a group of us. So, this might be a problem :/

3) Burning Man is absolutely wild and awesome and interesting (just like Bitcoin). I can think of no better way to spend a week with fellow bitcoiners. But, it's intense, and requires lots of planning. Cannot be done last-minute. Requires commitment and dedication.

4) A nice RV is mandatory... fuck tents in the hot sun. A/C, showers, and cold beer Wink

Well stated. This sort of idea should be put into the glam campbitcoin website somewhere.

I've always been mildly interested in going to Burning Man, but not enough to even come close to doing it.  Got various experiences with the hippie Renascence Fairs as a kid, and my substance experiments out of the way in my late teens, so my life will be complete enough if I miss out on Burning Man completely.

I actually ended up on that lake-bed driving around one time about 15 years ago only later realizing what it was.  Nobody was there at the time.  It was the coolest place!  I tried to write my name in half-mile tall letters.  It's damn difficult.

If I did go to Burning Man I would certainly avoid any contact with the Bitcoin crew (while at that venue.)  Especially after the SJ 2013 conference and reading down through the posts on this thread.

Indeed, it will be done. Some updates will be made in the coming week.

While we're speaking of updates, pour one out for our brother Charlie. Sad

Wow Psy, that's cold as ice. lol

I've been there once. Burning Man is just an excuse for a people to get high, get naked and fuck in public. You can experience the same thing during any number of festivals in San Francisco. The only difference is at Burning Man you go to sleep every night with sand in your eyes and between your teeth. Burning Man only lasted a week. It took me two weeks to wash the sand out of my hair and the crack of my ass when I got home. Never again!

I hear you. With all the fine looking ass and killer weed near you why fly all the way to this fucked up country. Unless, of course, prison is another experience you want to try. I don't think most Americans realize we lead the world in the number of incarcerated citizens.

To say there is nobody at burning man who cares about bitcoins is just a stupid statement.
Burning Man has people from all walks of life, getting together to enjoy music, freedom and getting messed up.
The focus of the festival will not allow this idea, even if the participants would be interested.
It's like advertising life insurance at a christmas party, just too unrelated and awkward.
By all means, wear your own Bitcoin T-Shirt.

Another good idea is to make subtly cool bitcoin t-shirts.  Like a shirt with a crazy design made out of bitcoins that some half-naked chick will want to stare at for 20 minutes in the hot desert sun.

Print out a bunch of paper wallets load them with some Bitcoin and give them away to people.

Because that would be the cool thing to do.

Bullshit. I've attended burning man twice and use bitcoin.

I was under the impression that nothing was sold or purchased during Burning Man, but guess I'm mistaken.

Next, I see Yankee/Charlie logged in yesterday.

That's correct. Nothing can be sold or purchased there (except... ice, and not that kind of ice).

Hey Bruno! Miss you bro...

Yo man! Saw you online on Skype, thought maybe I was wigging out. Anyway, I'm sure it's the most trivial of your problems right now, but given the thread... Do we leave you on the CB website? Going to make it by hook or by crook?
