It's that time again -- here are the top 5 viewed PechaKucha 20x20 presentations for the month of June 2013!
First off, we have Ideapreneurs; a presentation on the development of new education methods for creatives.
Second is A Quest for Adventure: hear what it's like to ride your bicycle around the world, walk the length of the Kaveri River in India, and canoe 500 miles down the Yukon.
In third we have Table Talks presentation Crossover Innovation, in which we hear of the design processes behind disruptive, iconic products.
Coming in fourth is Guilty Pleasures -- herein we learn that pleasures (that don't harm others) ought never make us feel guilty.
And finally, rounding out our top 5 in June is Curiosity Leads to Creativity: see how one woman's inquisitive nature has lead her down countless creative paths.
To see more fantastic 20x20 presentations, kick back for a quick six minutes and forty seconds and check out the PechaKucha WATCH page.

Welding, cutting, bending, sand-blasting, polishing, Sjors van Buyten does it all; and in this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Hong Kong Vol. 14) he elaborates on the pieces he's crafted from found objects. Sjors works primarily with metals, wood, and light -- and the results are often electrifying.

PechaKucha Night Hong Kong Vol. 14 is still about 2 weeks off, but Chinese New Year is fast approaching (Sunday, February 10th)! As 2013 is the Year of the Snake, the poster features a snake enveloping an entire elephant. We suppose this is a good thing?
Either way, from all of us at PechaKucha HQ: have a wonderful Chinese New Year and may your happiness be without limit.

Presentations Today, we share the final set of presentations from last week’s Tokyo Designers Week edition PechaKucha event (PKN Tokyo Vol. 96). Please note that all of today's presentations are in Japanese. Ayako Suwa (food creation) brings her delicious food-induced designs to the PKN stage. Nagisa Kidosaki, a Yokohama-based architect, covers a few projects produced with students from the Kyoto Institute of Technology Naka Lab. Jewelry designer Mikiko Minewaki shares her unique accessories, often built using pieces from plastic Gundam models. The always inventive "tinkerer" Muneteru Ujino shares some of his projects, and takes us on a wonderful trip. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, for PKN Hong Kong Vol. 13 (pictured above) and PKN New Haven Vol. 14. For the Hong Kong poster, that pixelized profile you see is for none other than PechaKucha co-founder Mark Dytham, who will be on hand to MC the event.
