Google created the burning man

Its a strange cult or religion.

Burning Man was started by one or more Libertarians (it is not a cult or religion), and I'm not aware of them working for Google. The first ones were extremely close to Silicon Valley, so I suppose it is possible.

Edit: I did a quick search and burning man was started by...
"Larry Harvey conceives first Burning Man. Larry and Jerry James construct improvised wooden figure and burn it" 
Saying "Google created the burning man" does not appear to be accurate at all.

Forgive me if I misread you, but I would think that Ticketmaster would hate bitcoin - an open financial transaction network. My take on Ticketmaster is that they unashamedly work to maintain a monopoly to charge highly profitable fees on every transaction.

I meant that Bitcoin would make ticketmaster not needed. Ticketmaster ia basically a monopoly when it comes to ticket sales. Bitcoin would let venues go around ticketmaster and cut out a very expensive middleman in the ticket buying process.

Burning Man is a big money making business controlled by Black Rock City LLC. Why don't you contact them and see of they would be interested in direct sales for Bitcoin. The way the Org covers up all the deaths, rapes and accidents at BM every year I'm sure they are all about profit. Just tell them a way they can increase their profit and it should be easy to sell them on it.

Please link to credible evidence that Black Rock City LLC is literally covering up "rapes and deaths" at Burning Man, or consider retracting your (potentially) reckless slander.

If this isn't enough please let me know. There are plenty more. LOL

Thanks! This instills belief in the rest of us that bitcoin is, indeed, a very valuable currency

Just wanted to let everyone on this thread know, my burning man camp ("Sextant Camp") has been promoting the use of Bitcoin as a funding/donation platform for Burning Man art installations.  The idea is to demonstrate this in hopes that the burning man organization might consider switching to Bitcoin if they truly believe in an open non-profit system.

We are also building a 17,000 watt tesla coil, with a 350' zip-line terminating right under the coils.  And a skybar too! 

On June 14th, 2014, during the annual "Burning Man Pre-Compression" event we handed out cards educating people on Bitcoin software (while also asking for donations to fund our efforts).

Here is a picture of the cards we handed out:
