I had the honor of interviewing Larry at LeWeb. I have been to 5 Burning Man festivals and it changed how I see the world in many ways.
Radical self expression (show up as you wish and do pretty much what you want), no advertising and commercial activity, gift economy with no cash, permanent collaboration and openness, leave no trace are some of the values.
Larry showed me another way to see the world. An Utopia that is in many ways better than the world we live in.
It helped me being myself and more present without the constant wonder of what others think.
This year’s temple burn will be especially sad and special. A reminder that nothing and no one is eternal, at least on this incarnation.
