An iPhone App for Burning Man

Black Rock City (AKA the Burning Man festival) is a gargantuan sprawl of temporary urban structures on an ancient lake bed, featuring more than 40,000 burners-in-residence and hundreds of odd activities going on at any given time.

Burning Man veterans–including top VCs, entrepreneurs, and the founders of Google–have an extra reason to celebrate today. Not only is it less than a month until they get to go camp in the Nevada desert again, but the Burner community just got a Silicon Valley giant to back down.
