Fertility 2.0 meaning

Fertility 2.0 - Black Rock City is a kind of Petri dish. Theme camps cling in fertile clusters to its latticework of streets, artworks tumble out of it, like pollen on the air. These nodes of interaction mutate, grow and reproduce their kind. Burning Man communities have now escaped this capsule world: our culture in a Petri dish has effloresced - it spreads across five continents. This year's art theme contemplates the tendency of any being or living system to create abundant life.

Spin it anyway you want, I still don't like this theme. It's redux (a sequal theme? really?) and it's dated (how about Fertility 2000? or Fertility: The Next Generation?).

Here's an idea - how about something original?

I think its fitting that the theme is fertility, especially with all this ticket drama, and the difficulties with theme camps and their ability to pool resources when the tickets are distributed randomly. Maybe its the Borgs way of spreading the pollen. Allowing the people who have the wares and the knowhow to go off and orphan burn and start new life. The second burning man sold out last year it broke one of the ten principals. It wasn't radically inclusive anymore. Unless they can get a permit for a whole lot more people, BM has to start new life. I think the org knows this.
When all else fails ... plan for burning man.

I figured that fertility has something to do with us being screwed with the goofy ticket lottery.

...and here I thought all along it had to do with feeding us shit and fucking us at the same time. Personally I feel like a mushroom that has been ass-fucked....

Thank you BMORG for that unique experience.

I like the relation to the fertility rate, but it's kinda depressing :(

As a web programmer, I couldnt help but think of Web 2.0 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0). Web 2.0 was a sort of revolution of web, where usability and functionality take over, and social channels are used to spread ideas.

I like to think of it more as a kind of 'next-gen' fertility, fertility with functional purpose and dedication. Back in the day, legacy meant making babies, otherwise you might just die in your hut (back in the day, we all lived in huts) and you'd be slowly forgotten. Having children meant your ideas could live on through them.

My take on Fertility 2.0 is that its the new-wave of spreading ideas. Instead of through our kids, we are offered many exciting vehicles in which to spread our ideas. Burning man is definitely one of them. The idea that I will be 'reborn' at Burning Man (woop woop!) implies that I will be birthed with the ideas and culture of the amazing people surrounding me.

While I'd like to just wear a giant penis costume (great for all seasons!), I think it's best that I take a deeper approach (no pun intended). I for one truly believe in this personal rebirth, and I'm going to make it my aim to 'midwife' others through it as well :)

"At the top of the hill, the Red Queen begins to run, faster and faster. Alice runs after the Red Queen, but is further perplexed to find that neither one seems to be moving. When they stop running, they are in exactly the same place. Alice remarks on this, to which the Red Queen responds: "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do to keep in the same place". And so it may be with coevolution. Evolutionary change may be required to stay in the same place. Cessation of change may result in extinction."
