The moral of the story? Pay your employees and have them sign a non-disclosure agreement.

This is why I like American news. It may not be entirely factual with rumours that some media outlets were in on the hoax, but the entertainment value is second to none. The over-hysterics of the whole event, the 911 call being made publicly available and the sheriff calling the suspect "nutty".

Brilliant.

Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention.

Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
