If you’ve ever wondered what I’m on about, or how this site went from a Burning Man fan site to talking about DARPA and the New World Order, then this is the CryptoBeast episode for you. I realize that most people don’t have the time or inclination to follow the 23.5 hours of video content in Shadow History of Burners or the 4.5 hours in 50 Years of Flower Power – so I tried to condense everything into just over an hour.
Everything I am talking about is backed up by references and notes which you can download here. I think it’s a fascinating tale which places the Burning Man Project in a broader historical context, and shows how their social engineering plays an important role in the world. One of the things which fascinates me about it the most is just how badly most Burners don’t want to hear it. YMMV.
In the wake of long-time Burner, cyber-pioneer, Grateful Dead lyricist, Electronic Frontier Foundation founder, and cattle rancher John Perry Barlow’s recent passing, we will remember him and Timothy Leary with someone who knew both men for many years: Robert Forte. Barlow and Leary were at the epicenter of the counter-culture, and spent their careers surrounded by intelligence agents. Were they working for We The People or The Man? Or both?
I spoke to Anyshare.coop founder Eric Doriean about how to get started in crypto and some of the things to look out for. We also discussed some of the potential of blockchain for new ways to living, sharing, and gifting. #communaleffort #radicalselfreliance
Remember when Burning Man was all about the Maker Movement? In 2016 the theme was Da Vinci’s Workshop, and Minister of Propaganda Will Chase left to do PR for Maker Faire. This year they have returned to the latest Silicon Valley buzzwords with I, Robot.
3DToken (3DT) is an upcoming ICO in the nanotech and robotics space. Their vision is “Factory 4.0”, transforming the entire economy with Just-In-Time, made to order manufacturing near the point of sale instead of making stuff in factories in China then shipping and trucking it around the world. Their 3D printers can use environmentally friendly, recycled materials. CryptoBeast interviews Politronica and 3D Token CEO Alessandro Chiolerio.
How do we make the world a better place? Is it by paying $1200 for Burning Man tickets, dropping acid and partying for a week half naked on a bicycle? Isn’t going to festivals just another form of commodification?
New technology is offering new opportunities to truly attain freedom – not just financial independence, but lifestyle independence. Burning Man used to be about rejecting the Default world and embracing something new and better. Now that action has shifted to the blockchain.
