[law school] law and Burning Man  
"It is as if the bizarre social and economic configuration of the quasi-anarchist Burning Man festival turned out to function in the middle of a city. What works in a desert is harder to imagine in Manhattan: people crashing on each others' couches, routinely sharing rides and food, and loosely bartering things of value." The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It, Jonathan Zittrain, p. 34.

Talking about the development and success of the internet.

Interesting. I find that once you're in burn culture, you don't really leave it just because you're off the playa. I find it fascinating that it spreads beyond burners.
