They say that a picture is worth a thousand words: it is certainly true for the Burning Man, festival created in 1986 by Larry Harvey and Jerry James, from 1997 organized by Black Rock City, Llc, which annually, in the week before the Labor Day (the first Monday of September) gather at Black Rock City, temporary community created over the salt expanse of the Black Rock Desert, in Nevada, thousands of geek managers and creative people from all over the world, eager to prove that they are members of the community “that matters” (according to a urban legend Google does not hire managers who have not been here at least once to participate in the Burning Man).
