It’s all about stepping into someone else’s shoes and seeing the world from their perspective. We here at PKN C-U are inspired by all of our presenters and value the opportunity to share their moments with you!

Nina Paley points out how, people, as permeable information portals, are constantly subjected to anything and everything produced in the world. Due to copyright laws, we often have less say over which ideas enter our heads, than what goes out. The solution, for Nina, is to simply ignore these copyright laws. She declared sovereignty over her own mind a few years ago and will never surrender it again. She encourages everyone to make art, not law.

BY SNO HASSLE
@ PECHAKUCHA URBAN INNOVATION MONTH

Universtity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students Jay Mulakala, Ricardo Pierre-Louis, and Albert Callahan were bothered by an issue common to many college campuses -- where to store one's bike when the term comes to an end? The three of them developed an enterprising solution to this issue with Snohassle: a simple yet innovative bike storage service.
BY STEVE JAROS
@ VOL 9
ON APR 07, 2012
Steve Jaros takes a few moments to drop some metaphorical truth bombs, and address some issues surrounding the books, movies, games, and tv shows we consume. In so few words, he makes the argument that we ought not feel guilty about things that entertain us, with the stipulation that we don't hurt someone else in the process.

BY SCOTT THOMAS
@ VOL 2
ON JAN 30, 2010
When Scott Thomas first met Barack Obama in 2007, the junior senator's web presence was suffering from a lack of consistency; there were, as he says, "37 different typefaces", and, about "416 different colors of blue" could be found throughout the site.
In his presentation, Scott takes us through the process of not only designing a political campaign, but changing the way politics are played in the 21st century.
He speaks on the power the web has to shrink our world; how far-away issues become our own when viewing and interacting with people across the country, around the globe. For the first time in American history we had a candidate addressing the people through live-streamed video rather than radio or television.
