Re: Ticket prices

A lot of people have accused them of the fact that instead of burning it they could for instance have fed poor kids in Africa. Their answer was: 'We didn't burn food or loaves of bread, we just burnt pieces of paper' A completely fallacious argument. They were not just pieces of paper. They had val...

Re: Exchange the world! (Exchanghibition on Indiegogo)

Thanks everyone - 40% of our monetary goal so far. I hope everybody understands that I have already put a lot of money in for printing the bills, making the suits etc and now will have to pay the shipping company as well. And somehow I don't feel the bank should become so real that we'll go bankrupt...

Re: How not to use Kickstarter for your Project

I don't know if Indiegogo is much better, but at least they seem to fit much better with the Burning Man principle of 'Radical Inclusion'. I, as a foreigner, am not allowed to use Kickstarter and I know foreigners who have used Americans or green-card holders to help out and all seem to have gotten ...

Just wanted to let you know because people are asking me questions ...

Re: Private Banking on the Playa in 2011

It looks like we'll be using Indiegogo. Kickstarter is just too much of a hassle being a foreigner. It's a little bit unfortunate, because it seems Kickstarter can really give projects a big push in the last week of a fundraising campaign, but at least with Indiegogo you don't have to wait till the ...

Obviously no real money will change hands on the Playa, so we are now working on a 'Spiritual-Karma-Laundering' contract, which Exchanghibition Bank customers will have to sign in order to receive our banknotes.
