Recently we reported that the Google founders chose their CEO by taking him to burning man, a ritualistic new age event of desolation. Burning Man released their plans for 2018, appropriately theming the Black Rock based event I, Robot. Heres what they say about the event, originally posted on burningman.org:
This years art theme will focus on the many forms of artificial intelligence that permeate our lives; from the humble algorithm and its subroutines that sift us, sort us and surveil us, to automated forms of labor that supplant us. Are we entering a Golden Age that frees us all from mindless labor? Everything, it seems, depends on HMI, the Human-Machine Interface. In a world increasingly controlled by smart machines, who will be master and who will be the slave?
And yet, if we turn the telescope around and regard the capacity of robots to process information and draw conclusions from almost unlimited databases, it becomes possible to imagine a solipsistic world in which most of our friends or even all of our friends will be robots: we would be surrounded by a slave labor force. Having out-sourced our minds, we might choose to out-source our selves. Who doesnt want a friend who mirrors ones own opinion of ones self? Already it appears we may be moving in this direction. Consumerism makes us crave convenience and seek instant gratification, pointing toward an automated future shorn of human contact.

Sounds as if the silycon valley types have completely taken over Burning Man. It was once a wild, wacky, DIY free-for-all but now it’s all corporate. Well, maybe they’ll be neater about the aftermath at least? Nah, who am I kidding, they’re leftists. Messes are for the little people to clean up. Consuela!
Free drugs and sex culture worried about robots. I am sure there will be an introduction of the newest sexbots.
Some feminist will demand that the sexbots be freed from servitude and ‘rape culture’.
But don’t take away her rabbit vibrator.
Wouldn’t a more appropriate web address be burningman.orgy?
Everyone in their own little bubbles deprived of contact with others means everyone having to pay endlessly for services and everyone easily exterminated when they become unprofitable, a rent-seekers paradise. No thank you, there is safety (and sanity) in numbers.
The dreary end result of rampant narcissism.
Isn’t it interesting how black rock city (note: Muslims worship a black rock) is in the shape of a Pentagram (note: satanic symbol)?
Oooh! Oooh! Let me guess!
Nudity, Drugs, and Alcohol!
Well, probably better than Rum, Buggery, and The Lash.
Now, let me go read the article...
The pagan sub-culture continues.
A Savage Quote!
LOL, definitely on the list!
Burning Man is so Reno...
...visit Coachella 2018
I don’t know, ptsal...how can you go home afterwards and resume your normal-appearing (to your friends and neighbors, at least) life if you catch a case of coachella?
And what if you gave it to your spouse?
What was his actual quote? I have never heard it. I have never listened to or read him, but after you said that, it made me wonder...
