Sounds like this thing has turned it to a "I have a bazillion dollars but don't hate me!  I'm awesome and "gifting"!  Look at me!"

It worked for Monty Burns in that one Simpson's episode.

The article says grilled cheese.

Isn't that what important people do in general?

If he drove then people would just get their panties in a bunch about how he's clogging up the roads.

Reeeally not feeling the outrage here.

FTA "I wanted him to experience the city and to experience gifting because I thought it would make him grow as a person and the world better off as a result; I believe that's exactly what happened, however marginally (he was already a pretty great person)," Moskowitz writes. "I've seen this occur countless times."

Because you can't count to zero.

No, see, they verbed the noun "gift." Verbing is trending these days. For example "Most days, I car to work, where I spend most of the day officing."

Grilled cheese.  The article did actually mention it.

The Facebook CEO helped pitch a tent, gave out some grilled cheese sandwiches, and helicoptered away.

At the 1998 Burning Man or so I gave out 1000 falafel sandwiches and chickpea curry to spectators, out of the mouth of the fish tent that usenet talk.bizarre people set up...we wore plastic gloves, kept clean and the food was cooked at the staff kitchens. Nobody got sick but we got a lot of love. :)

But...The Nevada health dept. didn't allow that to happen anymore --- too many opps for problems though I worked for the staff kitchen the next year too.

So giving out food to people en masse is a no no.

What we really want to know is did you all walk around in DNA-withering sun wearing only electrical tape on your nipples?  Melanoma would worry me a lot more than salmonella.

Only a little. Didn't get a sunburn, kept sunscreen slathered on or just sat in the shade. Most sane people stay under shelter until after the sun's low anyway. Or carry parasols.

Another big problem is hydration in the dry weather. The playa is a giant dessicant, being about a mile or two deep of packed desert dust. Threat of heat exhaustion and dehydration is worse than that for sunburn there. Especially for newbies who get drunk.

ever notice the price of the tickets to B/M?
"but we have X free tickets - you just have to find some way to get your sorry unemployed ass here are a way to feed your self while here.  Don't forget the water either.  When it's time to go - GTFO!

Too cool for me.  I look at it like it's a victim of it's own success.  It's just a carcass now.
That's how I see it at least.

Well why don't you just helicopter out there next time? What do you mean you don't have your own helicopter?

Every year since it started people proclaim BM is dead and all the cool people don't go anymore yadda yadda. Black rock city appears once again anyway, much fun is had, people go home, and then it's declared dead AGAIN. Over and over. In multiple decades. Yay dead.

I'm not sure what the controversy is. Are certain people not allowed at this Burning Man thing?

I'm glad somebody made sure those poor dirty hippies got a bite to eat. Good for you, Mr. Helicopter Guy.
