Another naive question. What's the significance of torching the stick man- Is it a gift to the gods, a celebration of some eclipse, or just the grand finale to a big party? Just wondering, obviously never been there.

I always thought hippie pot-smokers went to Burning Man. Hauling a bunch of wood out to the desert and torching seems like a real harm to the environment.

not just a bunch of hippies, I have friends that go every year. It is a bit of everything.

Yeah! That's the best idea yet! It would be so cheap compared to the massive security involved now.

But of course, half of the point of these meetings it face time with the public in public places (even though you can't see or go near any of them...)

As previously mention, an aircraft carrier solves all your problems.

Why is it that such places are chosen for such meetings anyway?

And apparently the whole of IDEO, as mentioned in "Art of innovation". The crowd ranges from hippie pot-smokers to Silicon Valley billionaires.
