It seems a foregone conclusion that it is the goal of the LLC and the community, through this discussion, to integrate these type of businesses into the fabric of the event... i think from much of what ive seen.. the discussions seems to be whether or not we should even allow them..trilobyte wrote:Based on the videos and anecdotes and our own personal experiences, what ideas do we have and what can we suggest to the Org and to these camps (again, in general) to help them integrate into the ways of Burning Man? If you feel they're doing it all wrong, what constructive ideas do you have to help them turn things around and do things right?Will Chase wrote:The challenge, then, is to help these camps integrate into the ways of Burning Man and to positively acculturate their participants. We also want the sponsors of these camps to understand how they are perceived and how they affect the event and the rest of the Burning Man community.
you put the moderator hat on to sway the discussion back to ways to integrate them.. but really, it seems that this isnt a desire of the community here, and in the comments section on the blog..
I dont have any ideas to help them integrate into the ways of burning man because I don't think we should have for profit/non profit businesses in the form of camps serving clients at burning man. I see integrating them as supportive of the businesses and I dont think those businesses should get any support, nor be allowed to operate at the event.
Suggestion to help them turn it around and do it right? Dont have clients, dont run a business at burning man and dont sell the burning man experience to people.
I honestly dont see how we can integrate these clients into the community.... You cant force people to care with clever engineering.
