PKN Prague Celebrates Vol. 20

We'd like to congratulate the organizers of PechaKucha Night in Prague for reaching the momentous -- in PKN numerology at least -- Vol. 20! The event happens tomorrow night (November 24) at Aero Cinema, and we truly hope that it's the best one yet. Expect to see some photos from the event here within a week or so.

But a few questions have been omnipresent: What is more important, content or form? Could you be boring but good? Should you try to be funny, especially when the others are, and the audience is having good time? How hard is it not to please the public? Should you try to react to your colleague’s presentations which precede you? (My personal advice: No!)

For a look at the previous PechaKucha Night in Prague (Vol. 11), we try something a bit different, starting with a bit of a dialogue, written by organizer Jana Kostelecka. Take note that PKN Prague Vol. 12 will be held on April 16.
