Unfortunately, my plans for going to Burning Man this year are not to be. However, it looks like Mr. Sells and his wife are going.
For my non-geek friends out there, Chris is a popular Windows expert who has written several books and countless articles on programming for Windows in its many incarnations. He recently joined Microsoft and is now a Content Strategist for the next version of Windows.
I went to Burning Man for the first time two years ago. Trying to describe what it is in words is very difficult. The experience is different for everyone. For me, it felt like being at a circus carnival refugee camp on the planet of Tatooine. Sort of.
In the picture attached to this post, you can see me and my wife hanging around the Mad Max inspired Terror Dome. Every night, this dome would be covered in people while two combatants attached to cords would swing around inside whacking each other with foam padded sticks.
