Past attendees include Valley titans such as Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. Tesla founder Elon Musk recently said attending Burning Man was critical to understanding what makes Silicon Valley tick. “If you haven’t been,” he said, “you just don’t get it.” What can a four-day ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
