City Focus: Huntsville

Home of the Space and Rocket Center and one of our newest cities, PechaKucha Night Huntsville takes this week's City Focus for hosting it's first volume at Mad Malts Brewery and Tap Room. While we highly encourage shooting for the stars, we can't condone drinking beer and flying rockets ;-) Be safe!

Poster for Honolulu Vol. 29

PechaKucha Night Honolulu inked this vivid poster for their 29th volume this week at the Honolulu Museum of Art School. Interesting side note: PechaKucha Night attendees, much like octopi, are behaviorally-complex, problem-solving, flexible-minded, creative learners who often have multiple hearts!

PK People: Nils Pickert

Theoretical physicist, hackathoner, camera connoisseur, and PKN Night Erlangen co-organizer, Nils Pickert proves that we have some brainiacs amongst our PechaKucha People. And speaking of brains, Nils is in Tokyo this week on business overseeing some technical aspect of a live Brain Surgery!

Ken and Mary's Sex Education

BY KATSUMI SAIKI
@ VOL 112 ON MAR 26, 2014

"It seemed like a good idea at the time..."

In the PechaKucha Spirit of Valentines Day, we ask "What happens when you have two naked female and male dolls, snow on the ground, and a camera?" -- A rather risqué (and hilariously absurd) education on sexual relationships of course! (and now a book well!) Listen as Katsumi Saiki talks about his love of photography and sex from Ken and Mary's Sex Education from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 112
