They decided to test the thoughtfulness of others by sending Meir Kalmanson out with cameraman Saul Sudin to “accidentally” fall asleep on random people riding the subways in New York City. Previously, we wrote about a similar video by Stuart Edge where he and friends fell asleep on strangers.

Magician Stuart Edge went up to total strangers and asked for their hand in marriage after fooling them a card trick. Stuart started off by telling the stranger that they were in his dream last night and, in this dream, they asked him to turn over a certain card from his deck. He then asks them to think of a card while he magically makes it appear, proving that the dream was real. He ends it all by dropping to one knee and pulling out an engagement ring.

Generous magician Stuart Edge took $1,000 of his own money to the streets of Provo and Orem, Utah in an attempt to help the homeless with a money magic trick. By giving 10 different homeless men and women a friendly fist bump, Stuart was able to turn each of their $1 bills into $100 bills while, at the same time, brightening their day.
The people we had in the video were all very grateful for what we gave them. We made sure to talk to them a little beforehand and make sure they really needed it and would be able to use it for good things.
Here is a behind the scenes video showing how Stuart planned his magic trick out:

The first Burning Man website was on The Well until after the 1995 event, when the webmaster decided to move on and it needed a new home. In 1996, Burning Man veteran Stuart Mangrum was working at the web design company LVL Interactive in Palo Alto and he offered to develop a new website for Burning Man. Stuart, along with David Beach and an awesome team of developers worked on a new design which became part of iSTORM, a cutting edge, rich media website that was a side project of LVLi.
Along with the new website, they put together the first real netcast from Burning Man, using steaming technology by MediaCast and internet connectivity through InterNex.Net. In those days I was shooting a lot of video, so I volunteered to help out with the netcast. I would run around the playa shooting video of interesting stuff and then come back to the RV, where Beach would digitize and then upload the video to the website. I remember how excited we were to know that we were sending out photos and video live from the playa, digital pioneers, we were.
Recently Beach was cleaning out some of his clutter and came across the old files and media from the Burning Man 1996 website and netcast. He uploaded the photos and videos he found and reconstructed the Burning Man 1996 website, posting it online as well.
Some of the videos Beach uploaded were those I shot, including clips of Chris de Monterey with the iSTORM pocket protector that was being handed out at the event, Dan Miller leading the raising of the man and the SEEMEN “Clappy Boy” machine.
In 1997 I ended up going to work for LVLi as well, staying there through 1998. After the 1996 event, the Burning Man website was brought in-house by the Burning Man organization and I joined the original Burning Man web team, working as the webmaster from 1997 through 1999. The LVLi gig was my last regular job before going full-time with Laughing Squid and the rest, as the say, is history.
