Last Saturday Balsa Man 2010, a tiny version of Burning Man, took place on Baker Beach in San Francisco (the location of the original Burning Man) concurrently with the event on The Playa. Aki Sasaki shot a wonderful video of the burn, there are a bunch of photos in the Balsa Man 2010 Flickr Group and MissionLocal did a great write-up on the event.
