If these are your take-aways from Burning Man, I am sorry. It is apparent that you just didn't get it. You had a technical experience, but apparently not an emotional one. From your article, it sounds like you were a perfect spectator; but not a participant.
I've only been nine years, and I'd happily share all my tips with you. I have no problem 'making it easy' for people. But if they came back from the event with nothing to share except how to make it easy on themselves I would wonder why they bothered at all.
You can camp with my crew next year. We aren't the perfect camp, but nobody from my camp has ever come away with this dry of an experience.
