Burning Man 2012: An Alternate Brand Universe
Why would anyone go to Burning Man? Because it's an alternate universe without brands or money, says Slate's Seth Stevenson. But is it really? Charles Krug figured out a way in (with consequences). Cars are not allowed as transport but cars called Mutant Vehicles are encouraged and even funded by a Burning Man foundation. Or maybe it's a $10 million dollar anti-brand.
If you're going, pack a costume. If you're not, here's some fun reading about what you may or may not be missing (this year's theme is Fertility 2.0).
