Danny Choo

If you've lived in Tokyo long enough -- or spent time wading through the oceans of YouTube videos -- there's a good chance you've spotted Danny Choo roaming the streets. You may not recognize him by face though, and that's because when you have seen him he was in full Stormtrooper uniform. More than just a servant of the Empire, Danny has used the success gained from his costume outings -- resulting in not only YouTube fame, but international media coverage as well -- to help power his own web portal, which brings in over 2 million unique visitors a month, all eager to follow Danny's adventures in Japan, as well as his coverage of topics near and dear to the hearts of the otaku worldwide. Danny presented at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 60 -- and yes, he was in full costume.

Liever talent dan geld

By Martijn Kagenaar In een maakbare samenleving gelooft niemand meer. Maar dat je een beetje kunt bijdragen aan een ‘betere’ wereld, dat staat vast. Zo kun je geld geven aan een Goed Doel. Zo’n aflaat is simpel, maar ook vrijblijvend. Je goede gevoel verdampt vaak waar je bij staat. Spannender, diepgaander en ingrijpender wordt het als je je eigen talent inzet. Dat kan leiden tot schitterende producten en projecten. Neem nou dit ‘Zero rupee’-biljet waarmee 5th Pillar in India de corruptie te lijf gaat. Als een ambtenaar je om steekpenningen vraagt, breng je hem met dit biljet in grote verlegenheid. Je maakt voor alle omstanders zichtbaar dat hij de corruptie in stand houdt. En jij niet. Het biljet heeft in twee jaar al geleid tot tientallen arrestaties en berispingen. Indiërs kunnen het in al hun landstalen downloaden. Je kunt je talent ook gebruiken om bewustzijn te creëren. Dat kan leiden tot bijzondere evenementen. Zoals bureau KesselsKramer dat tijdens het WK voetbal van 2002 een wedstrijd organiseerde tussen de twee laagst geklasseerde landen. De film The Other Final is een aangrijpend bewijs voor het feit dat sport alleen verbroedert als er geen zware commerciële belangen op het spel staan. (Nummer 202, Bhutan, versloeg nummer 203, Montserrat, overigens met 4-0. Hun ranking klopte dus.) En afgelopen zaterdag vonden op de zevende verjaardag van PechaKucha Nights (PKN’s *) meer dan 130 PKN’s plaats. De creatieve presentatiekrachten werden gebundeld om de aandacht nog eens te vestigen op Haïti. En zo ging er een heuse WAVE over de wereld: vanuit Tokio verplaatste die zich via Skype westwaarts. In elke stad hield de WAVE 10 minuten halt voor een livestream-uitzending van één presentatie. Helaas lukte het niet om op tijd in te bellen bij PechaKucha Maastricht. Anders had de hele wereld kunnen genieten van de hilarische Anti-Panda Propaganda van bioloog Lemke Kraan. Met de miljoenen die nu aan de reuzenpanda worden uitgegeven kunnen we volgens haar veel nuttiger dingen doen voor een ‘betere wereld’. Voor zo’n missie kun je moeilijk geld inzamelen. Maar dankzij Lemkes presentatietalent trekt haar boodschap nu wel de hele wereld over. * In 2003 organiseerde Klein Dytham architecture (KDa) in Tokio de eerste PechaKucha Night. Zij bedachten het concept dat nu in bijna 300 steden wordt toegepast: wie een origineel idee heeft, presenteert dat met 20 dia’s van 20 seconden. Na 6 minuten en 40 seconden springt de volgende spreker op het podium. Zo zie je op een avond 12 kakelverse concepten aan je voorbij trekken. In Maastricht kwamen al 1.200 mensen naar de vijf avonden en bekeken meer dan 16.000 mensen defilmpjes.

Save the Date: Sept 20th Global Pechakucha Night

Mark your calendars, September 20th will be a special Pechakucha evening - Global Night: Hidden Heroes. We'll be joining 100s of PechaKucha cities around the world for Global PechaKucha Night. The idea with this Global Night is to give us a chance to celebrate our city! We're not saying all of the presentations need to follow this theme, but it's a good opportunity to dig into our community, and give those "Hidden Heroes" a chance to shine. So we want to invite people that have something interesting to say and share about the place we call home. People that don't normally get a chance to tell people what they do, but have an interesting story to tell. Mayor, planners, artists, architects are welcome too. We are looking for up to 10 presenters for the evening and we will be following the 20x20 format. (20 slides (mostly pictures) that advance automatically every 20 seconds) Which means you have 6:40 to tell your story. It's really a lot of fun   So send your presenter/presentation ideas to me.   Katie Felten 262-227-0772 katie@translatormke.com
