Burning Man 2010 Ticket Snippet

A local graphic artist named Arin Fishkin designed the ticket for Burning Man 2010. This is a pretty big deal when you consider that each ticket is equivalent to a $200 to $300 bill.  Some of the security features include embossing and two separate foil stamps, one which is holographic. Other features are so secret that the event promoters asked him her not to include them in his her blog. The ticket is a work of art in itself that should get you excited about the event. Check it out.

A San Francisco Mission District local is the founder of Ambient Industries, a company that recently released an awesome iPhone application called Flook. Flook is described on their website as a location browser which allows you to bookmark and tag the real world around you. It has a cool user interface too! From the founder:

Flook is not about finding the nearest McDonalds but rather about discovering that this fire hydrant is painted gold each year to commemorate its part in saving the Mission from fire after the 1906 earthquake (http://www.flook.it/community/Jane/50524) or that there’s an Edwardian Ball on next weekend (http://www.flook.it/community/smiling-robot/71128).

It is pretty cool to have “an extra layer of information to the world around you.” You should definitely check it out when you get a chance.
