Just watched the Festival documentary on Netflix and I kept thinking:

This is what the western obsession about entrepreneurs leads to.

We're forcing the real inventors, activists and community leaders to describe themselves with the same term as Silicon Valley hustlers and scammers. There are grants and awards for "young entrepreneurs", and it's so much easier to call a hackerspace "an accelerator".

Do we really want to promote hustling and scamming as vital values in our society?

@alxd I was thinking the same thing when that fiasco was happening. :flan_angry:

That, and "Wow, as-if Burning Man wasn't entitled and Privileged enough for some people. A 'Party' without the pretense of 'Art'." :flan_rage:
