March 11: Inspire Japan iBook
Photo: Kathmandu, April 16, 2011 - PechaKucha Inspire Japan Remembering It is exactly one year to the day when Japan was hit by an unprecedented series of disasters. Please take a moment to remember all the lives that were lost and the people who's lives were affected on that day. Inspire Japan iBook published today Barely 4 weeks after these events, the global PechaKucha family rallied together to Inspire Japan on April 16, 2011. We are really pleased to announce today that the PechaKucha Inspire Japan iBook is available for download from the Apple iTunes Store. It's free, and can be viewed on all iPads. The iBook pulls together a snap shot of the 100s of Inspire Japan events that took place around the world along with photos, art made for the events, video messages, amazing city posters, 20x20 presentations, and reports on some of the projects that have been completed by Architecture for Humanity, the charity we supported. The great thing about the iBook format is that it is a living book, it can be updated, so this is very much the start of the iBook, not the end. We will be actively adding new 20x20 presentations about the progress and projects that are happening in the Tohoku region. We see the Inspire Japan platform as a great way to get the news out to the world about what is happening in Japan. It should inspire us all! The book is available today in the iTunes Store in most regions, just search for Inspire Japan in iTunes (or follow this link for the listing in the US store). Some foreign language iTunes Stores will get the iBook later next week. Thank you all for your inspiration and PechaKucha Spirit! Astrid Klein & Mark Dytham PechaKucha Night Founders
