PechaKucha Night in San Luis Obispo Vol. 14 is happening this very night -- March 11, at the Steynberg Gallery, with presenters listed here -- and after we got in touch with organizer Tom Di Santo to wish him a great event, he shared this bit of news:
National Geographic recently published a piece on the happiest places on the planet. San Luis Obispo was in the top four in the world and was the happiest place in the United States. One attribute that they called out was the amazing support for the arts here. We were glad that PechaKucha contributes greatly to the Happiness here.
There was indeed temptation to move our HQ from Tokyo to San Luis Obispo. The photo is from this post
