Cotonoha Artspace + Cafe
We highlight this photo -- found on Flickr and taken by Elizabeth Taylor -- of the Cotonoha Artspace + Cafe in the city of Ginowan in Okinawa not because it's a beautiful photo (although it is that), but because it also happens to be the venue for the PechaKucha Night series that happens in that city. In fact, the gallery/cafe is run by Daryl Mitchell, who also happens to the PKN Ginowan organizer. PKN Ginowan Vol. 3 was held just a few days ago -- see the list of presenters on the official event page -- and we'll hopefully get some photos to share soon.
A Cafe Where You Fabricate Things, Everything About Aperture, and Reports on Bangkok and Dubai
Presentations With a name like FabCafe -- and with a location in Tokyo's Shibuya district -- you may think that the "Fab" stands for "fabulous," but instead it's short for "fabricate." This presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93) by Toshimasa Kawai will reveal some of the amazing things that you can produce on a visit. Hint: It involves a laser cutter. This presentation (in German, from PKN Regensburg Vol. 2) by Johannes Paffrath could also be called: "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Aperture But Were Afraid to Ask." Posters There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight this poster for next Tuesday's (July 24) PKN Halifax Vol. 11 -- you'll find more details and the list of presenters with links on the official event page.

Poster for PKN Knoxville Vol. 9
Beth Meadows is a talented local artist who is well known for her creative abstractions of found objects, architectural spaces, and historic structures. She volunteered her time to design the poster for Knoxville's 9th Pecha Kucha and for that we are grateful! She choose this painting for the poster for the architectural qualities and proportion of the space - perfect for the integration of PKN into Architecture Week! The couple [and their cats] are taking time from thier busy schedules to sit quietly and listen. Sometimes PKN can get a little rowdy but the reason we all attend is to listen to a passionate community member share thier craft with us. It is an inspiring evening of reflection and gratitde. Beth Meadows graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BFA in Studio Art in 2007. She has lived and worked in Knoxville since then and currently manages The Salvage Room for the non-profit Knox Heritage, receiving and selling historic building materials.

Alexander and his team offer a great solution — POS terminal based on the iPad. Intuitive, user-friendly and with very affordable price, it simplifies the work of the waiters, which saves both their time and the time of visitors.
