Intelligent Life on PKN
The Economist's sister magazine, Intelligent Life, gives PechaKucha Night some love on its blog this week. The piece focuses on the most recent edition of PKN Atlanta, which the writer describes as the "love-child of a French Salon and a stockholders meeting." Sure, why not?
No PechaKucha, No Life!
PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 65 -- yes, 65 already -- was held last night, and until we get all our photos back and can put together a nice event review, here's a shot we found online taken by Ayako Goto with a very darkened look at just one of the images that was shown throughout the evening (that particular image was part of game designer James Everett's presentation). Ayako's comment to the photo is rather nice too: "No PechaKucha, No Life! Be Creative!!"
The Secret Life of Cones
Today's presentation comes from our favorite "repeat" presenter -- an amazing 8th showing! San Francisco-based designer Joachim Müller-Lancé -- we shared his presentation on tape in Japanese urban settings earlier this year -- takes us on a tour of the secret life of cones. And you thought they were 'just' cones, well think again. Joachim was in Tokyo for Design Week but normally resides in San Francisco where he runs Kame Design.
A Life as a Luthier
Let Anton Varela guide through "A Life as a Luthier," a presentation given at last July's PechaKucha Night in Ferrol Vol. 2. The presentation is in Galician, but the images alone do tell a great tale.
Water for Life
We're going to end this week's postings on the blog with two new presentations on the site, both recorded at PechaKucha Night in London Vol. 4. First up is Simon Taylor and his presentation that covers the exhibition he designed for the "Water for Life" project, in the building you see pictured in the above photo.
The Importance of History, Life Lessons from Sao Paulo, and PKN Champaign-Urbana Illustrated
Presentations History is important, we can surely all agree on that, but with his presentation (from PKN Memphis Vol. 2) Justin Thompson wants to make sure we all get the message. Entrepreneur and graphic designer Gustavo Garcia uses his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10) to teach us 10 important life lessons, regarding work, jobs, life, career, and more. Posters The new posters on the Tumblr blog today are for PKN Moscow Vol. 19, PKN Columbus Vol. 22, and PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 10, which is the beautiful fully illustrated poster you see above. Photos Today we'll point you to photos from last month's PKN Tokyo Vol. 93, taken as always by Michael Holmes -- we have galleries up on both Facebook and Flickr. Our Vol. 94 is coming up -- on Wednesday of next week (July 25) -- and since August is always a skip month for us here in Tokyo, it will be our last PKN of the summer. Calendar It's a quiet Wednesday with no PKNs happening tonight, but tomorrow (July 19) you can look forward to St. Albert's very first PKN, as well as a special edition PKN in Chicago (more details in this post).
Urban Exploring in Kyiv and a Dog's Life Presented
Presentations It would be difficult for a dog to give a presentation -- not many of us speak "dog" -- so in comes Lesley Ann Beck who, on behalf of Hamish McPuppy, describes a dog's life. It was recorded at PKN Pittsfield Vol. 1. Dan Voronov is a writer and director, and in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7) he explains how he has developed what he considers to be an improved way of conducting urban hikes. He's behind the "Kyiv Explore Together" project in which, under his guidance every Saturday, a group gets together to cross difficult terrain within Kyiv. Posters After yesterday's poster explosion -- which were also featured in the post -- we just have one new addition to the Tumblr blog today, for PKN Tbilisi Vol. 2 (above), which is happening this Friday. Calendar First, a reminder on what to expect tonight (July 25): PKN Derby Vol. 6, PKN Znojmo Vol. 1, PKN Helena Vol. 2, PKN Tokyo Vol. 94, and PKN Providence Vol. 40. Tomorrow night we have the following four PKNs set to take place: PKN Milwaukee Vol. 11, PKN Portland, Maine Vol. 20, PKN Detroit Vol. 12, and PKN Los Angeles Vol. 31.
A Performance and Learning Theater in Dallas, Life With Child, and a Plea to Go Greener
Presentations Ann Williams talks (at PKN Dallas Vol. 10) about the Dallas Black Dance Theatre, a performance and learning center, walking us through its various programs, and highlighting some of the shows it has hosted. Errold Brown has two major passions in life: health & fitness and child developmental delays. This is a personal presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 17) about how his life has changed drastically after his first child was born. Roman Sablin, eco-lifestyle trainer and social engineer, helps to promote and implement social projects that create a better future. Roman’s presentation (in Russian, from PKN St. Petersburg Vol. 20) helps people go greener, that is to work on sustainable consumption, turn on eco-thinking in our daily life and routine habits. He explains how to choose healthy and safe cosmetics, food, and surround yourself with the necessary minimum of high-quality things. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is in the form of the last two flyers/posters for the city of Leksand, Vol. 4 and 5 -- the latter is happening tonight, and you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. Photos Take a look at last week's PKN Columbus Vol. 23 through this photo gallery [Flickr]. Above, an attentive crowd, and an attendee shows up with a bike. Calendar Tonight's (November 13) events: PKN Brighton Vol. 17, PKN Leksand Vol. 5, PKN Denver Vol. 15, and PKN San Diego Vol. 16. Tomorrow, we have the following five PKNs: PKN Birmingham Vol. 7, PKN Okayama Vol. 15, PKN Amsterdam Vol. 23, PKN Mikkeli Vol. 2, and PKN Santa Cruz Vol. 1.
Sketchbook of Life
Today's edition of "Presentation of the Day" asks us to think on a major paradigm of our existence: the division of work and life. In his presentation (from PKN Stockholm Vol. 21) Martin Willers questions the necessity of this partitioning, and he does so while giving us a tour through his sketchbook. Willers addresses the 5-day work week and humanity's march down path of industrialism. We continue to build, to create, to work, but we also continue to waste. Is it really necessary for us to follow this incline? You be the judge.
Life after teemlead: Y/N?
Is teemlead an only way for professional growth for a developer? Personal advice from Viktor Sergienko on PKN vol.6 IT Dnepropetrovsk is to explore multiple opportunities for horizontal and vertical growth, be grave for leaving your comfort zone and never stop creating yourself.
