Educating China's Next Generation of Innovators

BY MICHELLE SIN
@ VOL 27 ON APR 14, 2016

As the first speaker of PKN Shanghai #27, Michelle Sin sets the bar high for the rest of the evening. Her insights into the Chinese education system are known to few, and described accurately by even less. The first seconds looking at her second slide you think it is a computer generated pattern, ... but then you realise it isn't. Learn how education isn't just about quantity, but also about quality.

People Make Places

BY CHARLES SPRECKLEY
@ VOL 142 ON DEC 14, 2016

"We managed to dig out all the people's personalities. In doing the interviews we uncovered so many layers of Japanese culture which I didn't expect."

In People Make Places at PechaKucha Night Tokyo. 142, Writer and entrepreneur Charles Spreckley shares stories about the humble geniuses who make Tokyo endlessly explorable: the chef and his restaurant, the designer and her boutique, the barista and his coffee shop, or the art dealer and her gallery. His self-published book about these inspiring characters, 'People Make Places', came out this year.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, February 3rd, 2017.
