This segment from CNN Money is worth the 3 minutes or so of your time.
Mike Judge created the satirical show Silicon Valley, as well as Beavis and Butthead and Idiocracy. He says that people in Silicon Valley don’t quite know how to enjoy themselves…hmmmm. He hadn’t been to Burning Man when he launched his new show. Billionaire Burner Elon Musk invited him, saying at the after party “it’s like the best party in LA times a thousand”:
“I really feel like Mike Judge has never been to Burning Man, which is Silicon Valley. If you haven’t been, you just don’t get it. You could take the craziest L.A. party and multiply it by a thousand, and it doesn’t even get fucking close to what’s in Silicon Valley. The show didn’t have any of that.”
Larry Harvey shared his opinion with Techcrunch:
“You can make a lot of money and do good with it. Elon Musk has made a lot of money.”
Later episodes in Silicon Valley’s first season showed a Burning Man poster in the coder house where the main characters live and work.
Anybody know if Mike Judge made it out to Burning Man in 2014?
