Presentations Here's how Joachim Müller-Lancé describes his presentation (from last night's PKN Tokyo Vol. 93): "I've discovered a design conspiracy which plans to take over the world. They place secret signals everywhere, and I will present the evidence." Alen Amirkhanian teaches environmentally sustainable urbanism and engineering, and his presentation (from PKN Istanbul Vol. 14) is about compelling work done internationally to understand the human global impact on the planet. He also talks about work he is undertaking to address these global issues at a local level. Poster There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight the poster for tomorrow night's PKN Gainesville Vol. 4, which was added a few days ago. Last night we had our 93rd PKN in Tokyo -- we'll have plenty of photos to share in about a week -- and we are currently in 537 cities. What you see above is a screenshot from the PechaKucha website 6 years ago, to the day, listing the PKN that was happening that night in Tokyo, Vol. 34. On the left-hand side, that's the entire city list as it stood in June 2006, all 14 cities. It certainly is amazing to think how far we've gone in such a short period of time. Calendar As we mentioned yesterday, it's a big Thursday, with the following events on tap: PKN Mallorca Vol. 1, PKN Bordeaux Vol. 7, PKN Geneva Vol. 7, PKN London Vol. 7, and PKN Vladimir Vol. 6. Tomorrow is another big night of events: PKN Edinburgh Vol. 18, PKN Fort Worth Vol. 6, PKN Wellington Vol. 14, PKN Gainesville Vol. 4, and PKN Springfield, Ohio Vol. 5.
