It's the time of year when Silicon Valley decamps to a party in the desert known as Burning Man. Grown adults, with children and jobs spend multiple weeks preparing, burning, then decompressing.
In this replay episode, we take a light-hearted look at Burning Man as seen from Silicon Valley. We review the history of the event, which began at Ocean Beach in San Francisco. We also cover a dark period in Burning Man's early history.
Michael White is a recovering Silicon Valley attorney. I'm a venture capitalist. Neither of has been to Burning Man. Well, that's not going to stop us. We watched a movie about Burning Man!
The movie we refer to in this episode is "Spark: A Burning Man Story" from 2013.
