Burning Man - Serpent Mother

Burning Man - Serpent Mother

Have you heard of Burning Man?

"...people make the journey to the Black Rock Desert for one week out of the year to be part of an experimental community, which challenges its members to express themselves and rely on themselves to a degree that is not normally encountered in one's day-to-day life. The result of this experiment is Black Rock City, home to the Burning Man event."

Sounds like something I aspire to go be a part of someday. I think I'll add this to my list of things to do before I die.

It's funny that I heard about this event via the recently launched (by moi!) MaRS Blog. It's not something that I would have thought I would find in a MaRS Blog.

It's just one more example of how amazed I get at the diversity of interesting things going on around MaRS and in the minds of the brilliant people who work there.

I went to Burning Man for the first time this year. Amazing, and impossible to describe. I'm around MaRS from time to time for Torcamp and other events and would be happy to share my impressions. Congrats on the MaRS blog, btw.

I was just thinking about TorCamp/BarCamp/DemoCamp on Friday at work. It's been voted best do-it-yourself-conference (AKA: unconference) by NOW Magazine.

Would like to check it out next time it's at MaRS (Nov 20th, by the looks of it).

Always so much to do, so little time...
