Burning Man as a Container - SF Gate Article

This really needs to be a longer article, but it has good bones (and a clickbait title :( )

The container for BM is the culture and values we discuss here. They go beyond the 10 principles. Our challenge are those who want to turn it into another kind of festival by accident or on purpose.

Well at least you can see Sparr and his MUNI bus!

Ted’s observation on the absence of emptiness and the void was more telling than his container metaphor.

You can still capture that epic vastness pre-event at Trego, if you venture out there boldly.

Yeah it’s weird, the event boundary is actually larger now but it felt a lot bigger before.
It’s kinda’ like a fishbowl now.
