Sorry if you've seen this before. It was in JRS or somesuch.

This is a good speech. It was given by Larry Harvey (founder of Burning Man) and addresses the commodification of experience and lack of community in modern culture. It also discusses how Las Vegas and Burning Man are both very similar and very different. It's not super long and it is fun to read. Enjoy.
