Bitcoin #WTF? Saved My Life
BY FREDDIE HEARTLINE
@ VOL 11
ON JUL 22, 2017
"Bitcoin is amazing because it is absolutely the most powerful network in the planet right now."
In "Bitcoin #WTF? Saved My Life" from PechaKucha Night Hanoi Vol. 11, Freddie Heartlinee tells a quick story about how he, a founder of a fledgling and failing start-up, luckily found the investment of a lifetime after spending most of his retirement savings trying to save his company.
The implications of Bitcoin's underlying technology totally blew Freddie Heartlinee's mind - and saved his (financial) life. He is currently as passionate and in love with the technology as he was on that fateful day, at that nerdy little meet-up in Vancouver in 2013.
Tough times don't last, tough men do!
The only certainty in life is the uncertainty of life. When you have an option, choose the best one. When you don't have an option, do your best. If you are positive enough, you will still see the good things in bad times. Every cloud has a silver lining! LQ Chiam explains.
Back of a Bike: An outsider’s observation of Vietnamese bike culture
BY HUREN MARSH
@ VOL 10
ON JUN 24, 2017
To an outsider -from the UK- coming in Hanoi the motorbike immediately establishes itself as major player in the city’s fast-paced urban landscape and it soon becomes apparent that it is not just used as a mode of personal transport. Casting an anthropological eye on the various aspects of the motorbike in Hanoi’s life, Huren Marsh soon began to observe what can only be described as a ‘bike culture’. Huren shares some of these cultural elements and how they led him to creating an exhibition to share these observations in a light-hearted presentation of photographs, texts, props and moving images.

Robyn Dippenaar's real leap of faith is not when she faced a big change in my life quitting her job, left her country and came to Vietnam, her biggest leap is when she took a chance to talk at this Pechakucha event. She says "Your leap of faith can be as simple as it is but yet still scary when you decide to do so."
