Just 4 weeks after the events of 3/11 in Japan, the worldwide PechaKucha community came together to "Inspire Japan." Over $85,000 was raised for Architecture for Humanity and ArchiAid during a non-stop 24-hour PechaKucha event that circled the globe. The process of re-growth is ongoing, and presentations will continue to be added as we continue to inspire.
ArchiAid was formed soon after the devastating events of 3/11 in Japan. Many of Japan's leading architects joined forces with students of architecture to help design and rebuild some of the hardest hit coastal areas.
PechaKucha Nights at Tokyo Design Week are where audiences can catch presentations by some of the brightest and most interesting design talent in Japan (with a few welcome guests from abroad). Each year's event fills up the TDW venue where it is held, with upwards of 700 to 1000 in attendance.
BitSummit is a new conference in Western Japan for indie developers to showcase ideas and meet with publishers. For this year's BitSummit MMXIV (March 7-9) the festival has expanded in size, length, and quality, with three days worth of guest speakers and musical guests, combined together in an event unlike anything ever seen.

Today's "Presentation fo the Day" uncovers the Japanese salaryman in the wild. In October 2006, as he was taking photos of nature in the forest near Kawaguchiko, a salaryman with a suitcase appeared on the track. Ever since that day, Bruno Quinquet has tried to investigate the mysteries of office work in Japan through photography. He has exhibited this series in Japan and abroad. In 2012, he launched a crowdfunding campaign to support the production of the "Salaryman Project Business Schedule 2013."
