Slides and Beer: Can't Beat 'em!

Our friends in Nebraska have written a piece about PKN Omaha in the Omaha Magazine, here's a little excerpt from it: Guests in Omaha pack places like Blue Sushi and The Slowdown to capacity in order to hear these sometimes witty, sometimes inspiring, sometimes awkward, but always highly individual presentations. Slides can be confusing, occasionally distasteful, and often beautiful. Speakers can and do discuss the design of anything and everything, including fashion, architecture, pottery, video games, prosthetics, car overhauls, and Native American heritage. Over the past five years that Omaha has been an official PechaKucha city, 179 people have braved the intimidation of public speaking to add their voices to the quarterly event, with anywhere from eight to a dozen speakers a night. To see the full article, head on over to Omaha Magazine. (photo credit: Bill Sitzmann)
