Something Ventured -- Silicon Valley Podcast
#21 Michael White -- Silicon Valley goes to Burning Man

Every summer, Silicon Valley heads to Burning Man.  In a lighthearted look at Burning Man, Kent and Michael White discuss burning man.  The history of burning man is covered (including the 'anarchy' year).  Also discussed is just how rich the attendees are, and the irony of even richer people showing up.  

Also covered is Burning Man's "K Street".  Or "Billionaires Row" -- the new Burning Man camp for rich people, that is rich with irony.  

The documentary "Spark --  A Burning Man Story" provides source material for the podcast.
