Protecting a Community, an Ecosystem

BY KAREN TAM WU
@ VOL 28 ON JUN 13, 2013

When Karen Tam Wu began her work in forest ethics, she never expected to be standing up to the CEO of the Shell Oil Company. What began with the company setting up three fracking stations near the headwaters in northern British Columbia, became a community-led campaign to stop the oil company from poisoning the groundwater that is so crucial to the surrounding area.

PKN Musical Comments in Salzburg

During last month's PechaKucha Night in Salzburg Vol. 2, attendees were treated to the first instance -- as far as we know -- of "musical comments." Organizer Bernhard Jenny explains: After our second PechaKucha Night in Salzburg we received numerous positive feedback. Our idea of inviting the John Bruno Quartet for “musical comments” was especially successful. We informed the band in advance about the topic of the presentations, so that after every presentation a short -- mostly amusing -- interlude (approximately 1 minute) was played, like an excerpt of a known song. Live music used for warming up, chilling out and for loosening up in between the presentations. The John Bruno Quartet can be booked worldwide ;-)

Communicator of the Year in Gothenburg

Last week our main man in Gothenburg, Jesper Larsson, was awarded a golden cow and the title of "Communicator of the Year" by The Market Association of Gothenburg (MiG). He received the award mainly because of his work with PechaKucha Göteborg over the past five years, but also as a founder of Creators Inn, the world's first free hotel for creators. Instead of an acceptance speech Jesper asked to do a PechaKucha presentation, but since he was only allowed a total of 120 seconds of stage time, he did an even quicker version. Using the 28 slides above he talked about himself, about how Astrid and Mark started PechaKucha Night at Superdeluxe, about the format and how it has since spread all over the world, about how he brought the concept to Gothenburg in 2006, including statistics about the events in Gothenburg, and then he thanked over 300 people, including the local PKN project team, the partners and all former speakers – all in 120 seconds! If you want to know how it was done you can download the PowerPoint presentation (for a limited time only) with speaker notes in Swedish. Here is an unrelated picture where Jesper wrestles Dolph Lundgren, aka He-Man. The next PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg (Vol. 28) is Tuesday of next week (October 18) at Blå Stället in Angered -- once a year the series moves from the city to a suburb of Gothenburg in order to find new speakers and audience.

Robots for All, the Art of Communication, and Bahraini Visuals

Presentations In a culture where robots are everywhere -- whether as a toy, in an industrial setting, or as a movie villain -- it's good to have someone like DJ Sures, CEO, roboticist, and the visionary behind EZ-Robot. Watch as he shares (from PKN Calgary Vol. 12) his passion for robots, particularly the ones that are easy to control. With "The Art of Communication" (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Michelle Thomé fully embraces the 20x20 format -- specifically, the numbering -- as she covers effective and efficient ways of speaking in public. Posters We've got a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today: the proper poster for PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1 (we shared the flyer a week or two ago), PKN Kingston Vol. 3, PKN Katowice Vol. 7, and the poster for tonight's PKN Bahrain Vol. 5, pictured above. PKN Bahrain organizer Mohammed Jannahi adds a few details for that poster: The poster is designed by Bahraini designer Muna Yateem, who recently launched her brand HARAKA (a common word used by Bahrainis which means to wear or do something with swagger). The idea behind the poster is making fun of Bahrainis and their reaction when they hear and pronounce PechaKucha, some find it very difficult and its even funnier when elder people try to say PechaKucha. The great thing about this parody is the fact that PechaKucha has an audience from all age groups and the word itself makes it "special" in Bahrain. And although not a poster, here's a look at the new logo for PKN Seoul -- the series has been on hiatus for quite a few years now, but is about to relaunch this summer. Photos We've got another fresh batch of photo galleries from around the web, and if you missed the live streaming of the recent PKN Edmonton Vol. 13, you can still watch the video here, courtesy of the Edmonton Journal.

VJ DJ Communication

VJs and DJs don't talk. Or at least, they don't communicate nearly enough. Lasse Laursen works hard for the money as a VJ/DJ relationship counselor -- well, kind of -- he develops audio interfaces for VJs and DJs in hopes to dramatically increase merriment levels for the crowd. In today's Presentation of the Day, "VJ DJ Communication" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 105, Lasse reviews his previous presentation on touch interfaces, and highlights his amazing research meant to benefit future partygoers the world over.
